DSU’s Volleyball Team Aiming for the Top

by: Rick Jackson

Delaware State University’s volleyball team looks to get back on track after suffering four consecutive losses. Some of the recent shortcomings of the team can be credited to new personnel of the coaching staff and implementing a new system.

Maya Dunston, a sophomore outside hitter believes that if the team remains focused and driven, success is soon to come for their program.  After being asked how the team plans to get their first win, Dunston says “,… there are so many small details we need to fix and we just have to learn how to finish games and be competitive.”

The captain of the team Jasmine Jackson, a senior, believes the team can turn this season around if the team begins to take more risks rather than a conservative playing style. “This weekend was an eye opener for all of us. We had really great moments that showed us how great we can be if we take risk and get out of our comfort zone while staying discipline.”

The volleyball team will do their best to implement these new strategies at their tournament at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Jackson says “, I am confident we will do much better this weekend.”
