Default BU Women's volleyball

The Bradley volleyball team played their first match of 2016 this afternoon at Milwaukee as part of the Pepsi Panther Invitational.

Last year's team (2015) finished with a 6-24 record, and they were just 1-17 in the MVC. They lost 23 of their last 24 matches, and an amazing 17 of their losses were 3-0 shutouts.

Bradley hired new volleyball Head Coach Carol Price-Torok on February 25, 2016, thus she had virtually no time to recruit more players for this 2016 season.

Bradley's first match was against Milwaukee. Bradley won the first 2 sets, but then lost the next 3 to lose 3-2. A tough loss.

They will play again at 5:30 PM against Western Illinois, and then play a 3rd match in the Pepsi Panther Invitational Saturday at 11 AM against Akron.

They have some talented young players. Now they have a coach.

NIU is the #1 overall top preseason pick among teams in the MAC...they are good, and we hung with them for one set but tough loss

BU Volleyball goes for their 4th STRAIGHT win
http://stats.statbroadcast.com/broadcast/?id=139412

If Bradley wins, they will be 6-4...
consider this..the last time Bradley had 6 wins before 9/11, was 2012.

Bradley volleyball won 4 matches Friday and Saturday in their CEFCU Classic to raise their record to 7-7 for the 2017 season.
The 7 wins so far equal the total number of wins the team had last season. Their 7 non-conference wins are the most for a Bradley volleyball team since 2011. Nice job Head Coach Carol Torok and team!
