College Vball: BSC limited in home matches

National Sports

For BSC volleyball, “Road Warriors” might be a more fitting nickname than Mystics.

“We spend a lot of time on the bus, a lot of motel time,” head coach Jeni Walsh said.

That’s because the team is limited to a handful of home contests this season.

“Our conference is rather small, and so we do a lot of weekend tournaments,” Walsh said. “It’s hard to host a tournament when we only have one net. We have a very small gym, and so we try to find really competitive tournaments in the region.”

BSC has just six home matches this year, but Walsh says the BSC community really helps make them count.

“The kids on campus really support us,” Walsh said. “We don’t have a very big gym, but it’s usually full. We just thrive when we have those home matches.”

Walsh says the almost constant road trips can be grueling on the players’ college schedules, but they do helping developing life skills.

“As an adult, you have to make that all work, and time management,” Walsh said. “The sooner they start that, the better off they’re going to be as an adult.”

And going forward, the team will always be on the lookout for more ways to play at home.

“We’d love to have a dozen or more [home games],” Walsh said, “but we’ll take the six that we got and try to get more for next year.

BSC has already played one of their six home games this season. Their next home match is Sept. 13 against Williston State College.
