PITTSBURGH -- The Point Park University volleyball team is poised for another big year in 2012 as it returns nearly its entire roster from last season's team that was 36-6 overall, won the American Mideast Conference Tournament and reached the NAIA national tournament for the first time.
The Pioneers begin their 2012 season Aug. 24-25 at the Early Bird Challenge hosted by Michigan-Dearborn. There, Point Park will play four matches with three of them being among the top 27 teams in the country. The Pioneers face Trinity International (3 p.m.) and No. 22 Cornerstone (5 p.m.) on Friday and then play RV Indiana Tech (10:30 a.m.) and No. 16 Madonna (2:30) on Saturday.
Point Park, which has 5 of 6 starters plus 8 of 9 letter winners returning, were picked to finish second in the preseason coaches poll for its new conference, the KIAC. The Pioneers are in the 'others receiving votes' section of the NAIA Preseason Top 25 Poll.
