Volleyball to Host Blue-Silver Scrimmage

Aug. 13, 2012

USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - The Air Force volleyball team will host its third-annual Blue and Silver Scrimmage on Saturday, Aug. 18, at Falcon Court at East Gym. The open practice, which will give fans their first glimpse of the 2012 squad, will begin at 7 p.m., and it free to the public.

The team, under the direction of third-year head coach Matt McShane, is led by Maiya Perich, the program's lone senior who set the Academy's Division I record for digs in a season last year (400). Air Force also returns the junior Cami Richan, who was the conference's top underclassmen in terms of kills-per-set as a sophomore (3.16), and sophomore Ayesha Hein, who led the team in hitting accuracy and blocks.

The squad also added 10 talented freshmen to its roster. The youngest members became the first recruiting class in program history to earn High Honorable Mention honors from PrepVolleyball.com.

Air Force officially opens the season on Friday, Aug. 24, at the Rice Invitational in Houston, Texas.
