Sep. 14, 2012
The UT Dallas volleyball team is gunning for its seventh straight division title.
The fall Comets sports season is in full swing this weekend with the volleyball team and women’s and men’s soccer squads hitting the road before returning to face opponents on campus later in the month.
All three teams have been picked to finish the season at or near the top of their divisions in polls of American Southwest Conference East Division head coaches and sports information directors.
The volleyball team was picked to win its seventh-straight division title. On Saturday, the team team continues its nine-match road swing Saturday afternoon with a match at Mary Hardin-Baylor in ASC East play.
The men’s and women’s soccer teams were both predicted to place No. 2 in their divisions in the preseason poll. The teams play Howard Payne University on Friday, and Hardin-Simmons University the following day.
In other sports:
- The men’s and women’s cross-country teams placed seventh and fourth respectively at a UT Tyler meet last week.
