ARLINGTON, Texas – The UT Arlington volleyball team completed their intersquad Blue/White Scrimmages today. These scrimmages mark the first time the Mavericks have played in a live match-like situation on the arena floor of College Park Center.

UTA head coach Diane Seymour, along with assistants Erin Clute and Lindsay Scanlan, use these scrimmages as a way to work through potential starting lineups before their 2012 home opener on Aug. 24.

“Our biggest progression has been our passing,” Seymour said. “We’ve got three talented kids (Megan Casey, Valerie Stetzer, and Caitlyn Cooney) fighting for that position.”

We’re starting to get settled in on the outside with Taylor Gross, Shelby Dickson, and also Amy Davault when she’s callen upon. But the most pleasant thing to come from these scrimmages has been the play of Ashley Bennett. For someone who played in maybe 10 collegiate matches last year (her freshman season), she is playing very consistent for us.”

The Mavericks will open their season on Friday, Aug. 24, against Savannah State at 7 p.m. in the kickoff game of the UTA Hilton Invitational Tournament. Click here for the complete UT Arlington 2012 volleyball schedule.
