Additionally, the Coogs picked up the following players:

One thing I’ve noticed is that we’ve gone from 17 players on the roster last season to 22 this season. We also only lost 2 players that didn’t graduate from last year’s roster (Gabi Zalaya and Jordan Lockwood) so Rehr did a good job of keeping this team together.

I think this will be an interesting year. I think our youth will probably hold us back from being able to move into the upper ranks of the conference, but there is some talent on this squad and we should be respectable in Rehr’s 1st season.

Will also be interesting to see how the conference tourney works since they’ve added one this year. Will every team be included?

Back in June UH installed three practice courts for volleyball inside the Athletic Alumni Center next to the elevated track.

Also on the recruitment page on the UH website for Volleyball, there are renderings of the new locker room in the Fertitta Center.
