Campbell Scouting Report: The Aggies are 4-19 lifetime against the Fighting Camels. The two teams will meet in the second match of a double-header on Saturday. Campbell returns four starters to this year's team. The Camels finished the 2011 season with a 13-18 record. Leading the way for the Camels offensively is sophomore outside hitter Jessica Groen, who has 128 kills and a 2.38 kills per set average.
Heading Back to Moore Gym: The Aggies will be making Moore Gymnasium their new home on Sunday, following the completion of renovations to the facility. The repainted floor has markings for multiple courts, which will enable the A&T volleyball team to utilize more than one court during practice. Moving to Moore Gymnasium not only gives the volleyball team their own space on campus, but also provides them with a more intimate atmosphere.
Freshmen Get In On The Action: The Aggies welcomed seven new freshmen to the team this year, and each has gotten quality playing time this season. Currently, a freshman leads the team in kills (113-Brooke Stamnes), service aces (26--Brooke Stamnes), digs (202--Ashley Johnson) and points (147.5--Brooke Stamnes). The Aggies will look to continue to develop their young squad this season.
