CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -
A day after being voted by the coaches to capture their third straight Missouri Valley Conference championship-- the Northern Iowa Volleyball team holds its annual media day.
The Panthers lost All-Americans Bre Payton and Michelle Burrow to graduation-- but they return four starters to a team that finished unbeaten in the Valley and hosted the first two rounds of the 2011 NCAA tournament.
The Panthers also return 5 seniors---UNI has won three straight Missouri Valley Conference championships--and have won 60 straight matches over conference foes. But the Panthers have a very difficult non-conference schedule with 15 of their first 16 matches on the road.
