Truman State Volleyball directs it’s attention to a fresh focus for the 2016-2017 season.

Senior Lacy Hill says the team maintains a clear focus during preseason and built their practices around TRUST. An idea they created to remind them what they are working towards each and every practice. She says the “T” stands for trust, “R” stands for reason, “U” stands for us, “S” stands for self, and “T” stands for training.

Hill says the team talks about TRUST before every practice to keep it fresh on their minds.

“While we are at practice, we always have to change what we are doing in order to get better and trust the changes we have to make in order to come into the season strong and better than we were when we first started,” Hill says.

The team got its first live look at their progress Friday, Aug. 26, in their annual Purple vs. White scrimmage. The ‘Dogs will get their first official chance to test their training Friday, Sept. 2, at 12:30 against #1 Concordia University, St. Paul in St. Paul, Minnesota.
