ROME, GA – The Berry College Volleyball team sits atop the Southern Athletic Association with an impressive 9-3 record.
The Vikings are perfect in the conference (3-0), but what may be the most surprising statistic is that the squad has yet to drop a set at home. Their most notable play has come in three consecutive sweeps over conference rivals Sewanee, Centre and Oglethorpe.
The team has a wide array of weapons, particularly in sophomore outside hitter, Emily Stromberg who was named Offensive Player of the Week by the SAA, and averaged 4.0 kills per set over her stellar week.
Flashy hitters like Stromberg have been receiving many assists from senior setter Stephanie Quinn who leads the team with 445 assists and 10.11 assists per set. Quinn is also a big fan of the dump ball and has been using that to her advantage over the past few matches at home.
The Vikings are hoping to repeat their previous success as last year they were SAA regular season champions and also won the SAA Conference tournament.
The Vikings start a long road stretch on Sept. 27 against Rhodes, another conference rival, and return home on Oct. 19 against Hendrix College.
