The Hurricanes look for their first win after a disappointing opening against the Gators on Aug. 22, losing their first two games on the road. In Gainesville, they lost to the eighth ranked Gators 3-0 and fell again to UCF 2-1 two days later. Goalkeeper Emily Lillard, scored the Canes’ only goal for the season when UCF mishandled a free kick. The home opener against Florida Gulf Coast University will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday at Cobb Stadium.

Sims lead the squad with 153 blocks last year, and Leaf was first in kills with 442 – seventh most in a UM single season ever. These two seniors are also joined by key returners Caitilin Donahue and Misty Ma’a, and look to improve upon their 19-12 record from last season. The UM volleyball season-opener will be against the Setan Hall Pirates at 7 p.m. on Friday at the James L. Knight Sports Complex.
