Husky Volleyball Featured On ESPN.com
Washington's dominant effort at the Tampa Twice Tournament last weekend attracted the attention of ESPN.com, which currently has a feature on the Dawgs up as the lead on its College Sports page.
The feature looks at how the Huskies have bounced back from their two-point loss in the NCAA Quarterfinals last year and positioned themselves as legitimate contenders this season following the sweeps of No. 9 Minnesota and No. 4 Florida in Tampa.
Here is a brief excerpt...
Miyashiro, one of the two players with the program when UW won its first national title in 2005, and Hagglund, who earned All-America honors for the first time in 2008, are keys to the Huskies' success.
Together, they ignite an offense that has been almost perfectly balanced and virtually unstoppable. The Huskies have four players averaging more than two kills per set, led by fifth-year senior outside hitter Jill Collymore at 3.29, and are fourth in the nation with a .325 team hitting percentage.
"I think I've got the best offensive arsenal in the country at my disposal," Hagglund said. "All of our hitters are great weapons and it makes it hard for our opponents to defend us. And with our passing, it makes it a lot easier for me."
