#2 GLIAC NORTH
FERRIS STATE BULLDOGS
(25-9 ALL, 15-3 GLIAC)
The Ferris State University women's volleyball team will enter the 2014 campaign with high hopes again after winning the NCAA Division II Midwest Regional Championship to advance to the Elite Eight a year ago under veteran head coach Tia Brandel-Wilhelm. Five starters and 10 letterwinners return for the Bulldogs, including a pair of All-GLIAC performers in talented hitters Courtney Rehm and Alexis Huntey.
Sophomore Stephanie Sikorski returns at the setter position after an impressive freshman campaign. Ferris State, which placed tied for second in the GLIAC North a year ago before its postseason run, will be seeking its 19th NCAA Tournament appearance this year. A talented incoming freshman class will help offset the loss of a pair of seniors from last year, which includes the GLIAC Libero of the Year in Brandie Merren.
