IOWA CITY, Iowa — The University of Iowa volleyball team opened its season Saturday night with the annual Black and Gold Scrimmage inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Fans turned out to Mediacom Court to get their first look at the 2012 Hawkeyes.
The Black and Gold teams played four sets, three to 25 points and a final 15-point set. UI head coach Sharon Dingman was pleased with the results.
“It was really fun,” said Dingman. “Our crowd was great. I have not seen a crowd at a Black and Gold Scrimmage like that in my first four years here. It gave our players a sense of what it will be like when they step out on the court next Friday.”
Iowa opens the regular season Aug. 24-25 with the annual Hawkeye Challenge presented by Comfort Suites. The Hawkeyes open the tournament hosting Chicago State on Friday, Aug. 24 at noon inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
