ANCHORAGE –

Yes, they dig their new place.

The University of Alaska Anchorage volleyball team worked out in the new Alaska Airlines Center in front of the media for the first time today.

Starting the season in a new place, there’s an air of excitement.

“It’s a wonderful facility, we’re happy to make the move. It’s going to be fun this year.” said UAA head coach Chris Green, who’s now in his seventh season.

The Seawolves return five starters and three letter winners to a team that posted a 21-10 record and qualified for the NCAA tournament.

South Anchorage High School graduate Katelynn Zanders was a second team AVCA All-American and leads the way.

“Everyone is really enthused and working hard right off the bat. I can tell everyone is here to win, here to play the best they can and improve along the way.”

The Seawolves open the season on September 5 against St. Leo at 9 a.m. at the Springhill Suites Invitational. LIU Post from Long Island, New York will also take part.

An alumni exhibition on August 29 will get the building warned up.
