Volleyball Hosts Second Annual Blue Vs. Orange Scrimmage Saturday
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia volleyball team will play host to the second annual Blue vs. Orange scrimmage on Saturday in Memorial Gymnasium. The action is set to begin at 3 p.m., and is free of charge.
The match will feature all of the returning players as well as the nationally ranked incoming freshman class. The Cavaliers will divide into two squads for the scrimmage and then the two teams will compete in a match-like format. Rather than playing a typical “best-of-five” match, the team will play five sets regardless of the outcome of the first four sets. The match will be played in traditional scoring format, with the first four sets being played to 25 points and the fifth to 15. A team must win by two points.
The scrimmage will be the first time Virginia will compete in Mem Gym this season, as second-year head coach Lee Maes is preparing the team for its season-opening tournament at Texas A&M on Friday, Aug. 28.
Following the scrimmage, the volleyball team will host a clinic for all youth 18 and under. Drills will be performed with the coaching staff and current players on the main court of Mem Gym.
