Bearcat Volleyball Preps for 1st Home Match, Football Eyes Fall Classic

The final week of September brings Northwest Missouri State volleyball home for the first time this fall, and it sends Bearcat football to its home away from home.

Northwest volleyball spent the first 15 matches of the season on the road, but they're finally returning to the friendly confines of Bearcat Arena. Amy Woerth's club hosts Southwest Baptist on Friday at 7pm, then Missouri Southern on Saturday afternoon at 2pm. Libero Olivia Nowakowski has grown into a leader for the 2017 Bearcats, and even set the program's single-match digs record with 47 against Arkansas Fort Smith earlier this season. Nowakowski and Woerth joined the Bearcat Coaches Show Thursday evening to discuss the start to the season, and finally returning home for a pair of MIAA matches. Click here for the full interviews.
