The Daily Hoot returns from its summer hiatus by catching up with the FAU volleyball team.
The Owls began fall camp on Saturday as they prepare for the 2013 season, their first in Conference USA. With four returners from last year's squad and 12 newcomers on the roster, FAU will have a new look this season.
Head Coach Fernanda Nelson and her squad will be the first team to compete on the repainted floor in the Burrow, which now features the Conference USA logo. Despite having just four players returning from 2012, including just one senior, the Owls will look to make an immediate impact in the new conference.
The team was on the court earlier today for practice, as well as for the finishing shots of their promo video, which will be shown on the video board in the arena. In addition to their on-court preparation, the team recently had lunch at the President's house to celebrate earning the highest team GPA during the spring semester (full story here).
The Owls open the season in less than three weeks when they host the FAU Invitational on August 30-31 against Southeastern Louisiana, Jacksonville and Bethune-Cookman.
