Head volleyball coach Laura Neugebauer leads the Roadrunners into a

schedule with 11 non-conference matches...six against Power 5

conference schools and six with teams that played in the NCAA

Tournament last season. 


"We've always set up our schedule to play hard at the beginning of the

season," Neugebauer-Groff said. "In the last couple of years, we've been

fortunate to knock off some of these schools that are in Power 5

conferences, which in turn boosts our RPI.


"Receiving an invitation to play in these tournaments and compete

against these high caliber teams allows us to prepare for the teams we

need to defeat in conference. Like we've seen recently, everyone in our

league is very competitive. When you reach the NCAAs they will face

teams like these. It just sets a parameter for our young kids to see what is

out there."
