JACKSON, Tenn. - 8/22/2011 - The Union (Tenn.) University volleyball team has been picked to finish second in the 2011 TranSouth Conference Preseason Coaches’ Poll. Union won their fifth TranSouth regular season title last season, but will look to replace four starters from that team in 2011.

Coach Elliott says, "We come into this season with excitement and anticipation because of the talent and potential. With six returning players and six new additions, we are truly a new team this year. The 2011 team will have greater depth and will push each other at every position."

Last season's team posted a 24-9 record overall and a league best 13-1 record in the TranSouth Conference. Union lost three starting seniors to graduation, and returns two starters from the 2010 season. Six total returning players for 2011 will join six newcomers to the program.

Sitting atop the poll was last season’s tournament champion, Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.). Bethel (Tenn.) was voted third, Martin Methodist (Tenn.) fourth, Cumberland (Tenn.) fifth, Lyon (Ark.) sixth and Mid-Continent (Ky.) seventh.

Union will open play this weekend on the road in the Milligan (Tenn.) Classic on Friday and Saturday, August 26-27.
