Football gets all the press this time of year, but I wanted to point out also that it's 10 days until the Leathernecks Volleyball team home opener.

It'll actually be a part of the Leatherneck Invitational...a tournament involving Western, UTEP, Saint Louis, and Eastern Illinois. Western plays Eastern on 9/5, then UTEP and Saint Louis on 9/6.

Not a good start for volleyball - wondering how much longer April gets.

Western volleyball is now 0-6.

Next home game will be Tuesday (Sept 9) vs Bradley. Game time is 7PM at Western Hall. Admission is FREE!

Bradley is also 0-6. Someone will be getting their first win of the season.

another disappointing loss, once again I ask how long does April get? I'm not calling for her to be fired, just wondering what others think. She seems nice and am rooting for her but volleyball program is really down right now
