Women's Volleyball Weekly Report - Interview with Maile Hetherington (Video)

The women's volleyball team hosts the annual Sacred Heart Invitational this weekend as they welcome Lehigh, Jacksonville, Binghamton, and Dartmouth to the William H. Pitt Center.  Junior libero Jessica Colberg (Long Beach, CA) leads the Pioneers into action after claiming all-tournament honors last weekend in her hometown at the Long Beach State Baden Classic.  Colberg racked up an impressive 58 digs in three matches en route to being the only player named to the all-tournament team not from #25 St. Mary's (CA) or host Long Beach State.

The Pioneers will play in three matches, kicking off the SHU slate will be the final game of Friday night in an 8:00 pm clash with the Mountain Hawks of Lehigh.  Sacred Heart opens play the following morning at 9:00 am against the Jacksonville Dolphins.  The Pioneers finish play at the 2010 SHU Invitational in 3:00 pm action with Binghamton.  The final game of the weekend will be at 5:00 pm on Saturday featuring Lehigh and the Dartmouth Big Green.

The all-tournament team will be announced following the final match of the weekend.  The complete tournament schedule as well as links to live stats, live video, and box scores are available on the tournament central webpage.
