It is no secret that the COVID – 19 pandemic has changed our perspective of the word “normal.” From our day-to-day lives to milestone events, everything is different. McPherson College is fortunate enough to be able to play during the fall sports season. Alongside football, cross-country, tennis and soccer, our volleyball team is excited to compete once again.
Riley Bradbury, a senior leader for MC volleyball, said, “This season will be a lot different considering we’re playing in both fall and spring, but I think it will be my favorite season at Mac.” This season will look different for the Bulldogs because fall sports are breaking their seasons in two, playing both in the fall and spring.
Although a great portion of the team are newcomers, the chemistry does not feel that way according to Bradbury. “Everyone challenges one another to be the best they can be,” Bradbury said, “the one major obstacle the team will face this year is the extended winter break. It’ll be important to stay healthy and keep our bodies healthy since we hop right back into it mid-January,” said Bradbury.
The team is hopeful to bring home another conference championship, despite the challenges the pandemic brings.
