Posted: Updated:

It's the 40th season of UNI Women's volleyball and the Panthers would love to celebrate this milestone with a return to the NCAA tournament.
The Panthers return 4 starters from a team that finished with a 23 and 8 record and tied for the Missouri Valley Conference regular season title.

Northern Iowa will enter the 2014 season with a thinner roster--with only 14 players.. UNI Head Coach Bobbi Petersen entering her 15th season says this presents some challenges. 

"So that"s the challenging part for us because we are not deep in a lot of positions and 14 is the lowest roster we have had in a while so being versatile will be huge for us because we will probably if we have an injury we will have someone playing in a position they did not think they were going to to play but I look at this group as taking those kinds of challenges and going with it."

UNI opens the season on August 29th at St. Louis.
