New Brunswick proved no more a fortress this weekend for the Rutgers volleyball team than New Haven or Philadelphia.Hosting the Rutgers Invitational on Sept.
How a team responds to adversity is generally the best measure of its ability.In wake of its five game slide spanning the last two weeks, the Rutgers volleyball team aims to curb its losing ways at the Rutgers Invitational on Sept.
The Rutgers volleyball team had a sharp learning curve when it entered the Big Ten Conference three years ago.The Scarlet Knights are a combined 1-39 against Big Ten opponents in its history as a member.With Big Ten play arriving in just a week, the team desperately needs to regroup after they dropped all three games this past weekend in the Hilton Penn’s Landing Cherry & White Challenge in Philadelphia. And with only the Rutgers Invitational separating it from conference play, the squad has limited time to rectify its mistakes these past few weeks and act on its strengths in the matches to come.With the last few non-conference tournaments hanging over the collective heads of this volleyball team, there has been a strong emphasis on bouncing back, especially with the Big Ten matchups hanging in the balance.Head coach CJ Werneke, who has headed this team through its transition into the Big Ten, said he recognizes the need for change within the system.
After a 4-3 start to its season, the Rutgers volleyball team looked poised to take Philadelphia by storm in the Hilton Penn’s Landing Cherry & White Challenge hosted by Temple.But despite their early season success, the Scarlet Knights left the City of Brotherly Love winless, falling to New Hampshire, Cleveland State and Temple.The invitational brought the squad to a 4-6 record, with the team dropping below .500 for the first time since losing the first game of the season.Rutgers began the weekend with a matchup against New Hampshire, losing in four sets with scores of 19-25, 23-25, 25-18 and 13-25. The Knights fell early in each of the first two sets, which rendered them unable to mount comebacks in either.
The Big Ten has not been all the Rutgers volleyball team has hoped it would be, but this season the air is light and fresh around the College Avenue Gym.Buoyed by a record over .500, the Scarlet Knights will take their talents to Philadelphia Sept.
Freshmen such as Jasmine Stackhouse, Megan Sharkey and Jillian Duffin play a big role in the Rutgers volleyball team's 4-3 start to the season.
Open on Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois, where the Knights
(1-4, 0-2) will do battle with the Fighting Illini (2-3, 0-2) in a
contest of cellar squads looking to move up.There are very few
points in the schedule where Rutgers has a shot at cutting its losses
and finally playing a solid consecutive four quarters. Coming off of a
bye week, Saturday at noon remains as good an opportunity as ever.
It is a well known fact that playing a team coming off of an upset loss, an angry team, is usually not the greatest for the next underdog team to play against.Unfortunately, for the Rutgers football team, it may be facing one of the angriest teams in college football in Nebraska.The Scarlet Knights (1-2) will travel to Lincoln, Nebraska this Saturday to take on the Cornhuskers (1-2) for their first road encounter and first Big Ten game of the year, one that comes on the heels of a dominant 65-0 victory over Morgan State.As for the home side this weekend, the thoughts of two consecutive, one to Oregon and one to Northern Illinois, losses even before Big Ten play has started lingers.Like Rutgers' loss to Eastern Michigan in week two, Nebraska was unable to fend off a Mid-American Conference (MAC) team in Northern Illinois."A lot like ours to Eastern Michigan," said head coach Chris Ash, on the Huskers' loss last week. "They had opportunities to win the game and didn't make them.
After finishing on a 24-34 line with 178 passing yards in his first game for the Rutgers football team — with two touchdowns to boot — graduate transfer quarterback and freshly minted captain Kyle Bolin looked reasonably sharp after taking the starting job from Giovanni Rescigno out of summer camp.That was week one against a Washington defense that piled on the pressure, especially later on, drawing two interceptions, one of which led to a score.One would assume — and many did — that Bolin would have his way against Eastern Michigan, a Mid-American Conference team without a win over the entire Big Ten.
