Sophomore volleyball player Raechel Warchock earned a Player of the Week nomination on Nov. 10 after totaling 37 digs, one kill, and two assists in the University of Michigan-Dearborn volleyball team’s final three games of the season (Nov. 5-8).
The Wolverines (8-12) were leading John Carroll (7-10) 3-0 with 6:19 left in the second period when the game was suspended after agreement between the two coaches and the officials.
For 23 players on the Michigan roster, it is a return home. A return to a place where you’re hated for being a Michigan Wolverine. But the hate is even deeper for these 23 players, as they chose the Wolverines over their home state team: The Ohio State Buckeyes.
There was a loud slam heard across the state of Michigan Saturday evening. And no, it was not from a car accident due to the icy roads. It was the hopes of a Michigan bowl game.
It was playoff time in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference last week, and a new champion was crowned after a long week of soccer.
But for eight members of the University of Michigan-Dearborn men’s soccer team, hitting the books is just as important as hitting the field.
The University of Michigan-Dearborn volleyball team ended its season without a single win, going 0-33. (0-22 Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference). On paper, it looked pretty rough for the Wolverines. But even with a winless season, there’s always room to point out of the positives as well as improve on the negatives.
