#5 GLIAC SOUTH
MALONE PIONEERS (12-18 ALL, 7-11 GLIAC)

Malone Volleyball Preview | Schedule

The Malone University volleyball team, under the direction of veteran head coach Tanya Hockman, returns a number of key players in 2014 as the squad looks to improve upon last year’s 7-11 conference record. 

Back to lead the way for the Pioneer attack are libero Katie Hasebein, outside hitter Anna Hays and middle hitter Elizabeth Maczuzak.  Hasebein ranked ninth in the conference with 4.13 digs per set last year.  Hays tallied 1.91 kills per set in 2013 and her average of 0.43 aces per frame was second best in the GLIAC.  Maczuzak also made substantial contributions, totaling 174 kills and ranking second on the team with 55 total blocks.

With the loss of outside hitter Taylor Slauterbeck due to offseason surgery, Malone will also be looking for solid contributions at the OH position from junior Sarah Brent, sophomore Victoria Yoder and newcomers Ashley Boyd and Shelbi Meek.
