CULLOWHEE, N.C. – With the 2022 regular season fast approaching, the Western Carolina volleyball team welcomes Anderson University to Ingles Court at the Ramsey Center on Saturday (Aug. 20) at 6 p.m. for an exhibition contest.
 
Admission to all home WCU volleyball matches is free of charge. Following the match, the team will participate in an autograph session. Live stats for the match can be found online at CatamountSports.com.
 
Fifth-year senior outside hitter Merry Gebel and junior libero Destinee Dorsey were named to the preseason All-Southern Conference team released on Wednesday. Gebel earned a spot on the preseason team for the third straight year, while Dorsey, the SoCon’s 2020-21 Libero of the Year, was honored for the first time in her career. WCU was picked to finish in fifth place in the preseason coaches poll.

The Catamounts return six starters from last year’s squad with a combined 13 returning players from a squad that garnered the fourth seed in the 2021 SoCon Tournament. Glover and WCU also welcomed five freshmen to the fold this fall.

 

Anderson heads to Cullowhee in the back end of a two-match SoCon exhibition swing, traveling to UNCG on Friday evening. In 2021, the Trojans posted a 23-8 overall record after winning a share of the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) regular season title and hosting the 2021 NCAA Division II Southeast Regional. The Trojans were picked to finish in third place in the SAC preseason coaches’ poll behind both Wingate and Tusculum. Four Trojans earned preseason all-conference plaudits as Madison Roy and Noelle Knutson were preseason All-SAC first-team selections with Jaelyn Grimm taking a spot on the second team and Sadie Kluner earning third-team accolades.

 

WCU opens the 2022 regular season next weekend at the Wake Forest Invitational, facing Kennesaw State on Friday, Aug. 26 at 4:30 p.m. before facing the host Demon Deacons on Saturday, Aug. 27 at Noon and NC Central at 4:30 p.m. On Monday evening, head coach Karen Glover will participate in a 2022 Fall Sports Preview Facebook LIVE event, presented by Stanberry Insurance through the WCU Athletics Facebook page. The preview show begins at 6 p.m.
