ROCHESTER, Mich. -- The Oakland volleyball team started its first official practice Tuesday afternoon as it begins the 2017 season. The team returns three-time all-league performer Sammy Condon plus Jordan Lentz, who was named to the all-freshman team a season ago.
After adding six newcomers, the Golden Grizzlies will look to build off of a fourth place finish in the Horizon League that saw them make it to the league tournament semifinals. Seniors Condon, Darien Bandel, Darrin Rice and Katie Chadwell will compete one final season as Oakland opens the season Saturday with its Black and Gold game and then continues exhibition play Aug. 18 at Toledo. The regular season begins Aug. 25 at the Butler Tournament against Eastern Michigan.
