Homecoming for Panther volleyball team as well

Posted:

(Cedar Falls, IA)  No matter where you are, Homecoming week pretty much centers around a football game.  UNI is no different with the Panthers hosting Illinois State on Saturday but the Panther volleyball team will have a chance to be part of the action as well.

UNI plays host to Bradley in the McLeod Center almost immediately after the football game.  Head coach Bobbi Peterson says she's excited that her team will have the opportunity, but she knows there are distractions that go with Homecoming week as well, and her team needs to avoid that.

"Originally we have the match scheduled for Friday, which would have been awesome.  Unfortunately Bradley couldn't do it," says Peterson, "if we played Friday, we could let them go to the football game, but I think our kids know how important each conference match is"

The Panthers are currently 16 -2 on the season and undefeated in conference play.
