This Week in Valpo Volleyball: The Valparaiso University volleyball team faces a key stretch of three matches in four days this weekend, traveling to take on UNI and Drake on Friday and Saturday, respectively, before returning home and hosting Missouri State Monday evening.
Previously: Valpo didn’t let injuries slow it down last weekend, as despite playing with just one healthy middle, the Brown and Gold came out with wins over Evansville (3-1) and Indiana State (3-0).
Looking Ahead: After a heavy weekend this weekend, it’s a light slate next weekend, as Valpo travels to Loyola on Friday, Nov. 2 for its only match.
Following the Action: All three matches this weekend will be broadcast as part of the season-long package with The Valley on ESPN. The Drake match will be on ESPN3, while the UNI and Missouri State matches will be on ESPN+. Live stats will be available as well.
