One Week to Go!

The Miners will scrimmage today at 4pm in Memorial Gym.

The season starts next Friday night in El Paso. Jacquie tweaked her ankle a few weeks ago. Hopefully, she'll be near 100% for the season opener on Friday night.

Preseason observations from a daughter of very few words:
  • The refurbished locker room is lush
  • The Valencia/Figueroa defensive tandem has been outstanding
  • Newcomer Xitlali Herrera is unstoppable on the slide and puts up a great block
  • Freshman Talia Jones is the real deal
  • Jeane Horton may start the season at OH instead of MB
  • Jacquie has been playing a lot of back row in preseason
  • Yesterday was picture day and the weather was windy and rainy-perfect hair tossed in every direction made for some cranky Miner Vb divas
  • All #15 has time for right now is playing ball, ankle rehab, eating, sleeping and Netflix movie marathons
