Then-sophomore outdoors hitter Reese Devilbiss hits the ball within the internet throughout the finalset of No. 3 Ohio State’s match against No
Despite falling to Penn Condition in straight sets on Tuesday, the Ohio Condition men’s volleyball team brings momentum into its weekend matchesLindenwood and Quincy at St. John Arena.
Senior setter Sanil Thomas and junior outdoors hitter Reese Devilbiss came back towards the beginning rotation for that Buckeyes (7-15, 2-6 MIVA) against Penn Condition after each missing multiple games battling injuries.
Thomas, who brought the country last season with 11.28 assists per set, hadn’t began since Jan. 26 against Ball Condition as a result of right hands injuries. Devilbiss have been sidelined having a litany of injuries since February. 21 against then-No. 10 Lewis.
Ohio Condition mind coach Pete Hanson statedback two key bits of the selection in Thomas and Devilbiss will positively influence they over time.
“They haven’t been back lengthy enough always to actually make severe changes and have a serious effect, however i think that’s going to take place,” Hanson stated. “As Reese will get comfortable and that he does a bit after which Sanil does a bit, it simply lessens pressure for all those remaining guys.”
Hanson stated because the team will get more possibilities to build up a rhythm, the chemistry can come naturally.
Ohio Condition can get two more possibilities a few days ago if this assumes familiar enemies in Lindenwood and Quincy.
Lindenwood (7-15, 3-6 MIVA) defeated the Buckeyes the 2009 season in straight sets, using 29 combined kills and nine blocks from newcomer outdoors hitter Phil Swartz, junior opposite hitter Charley Hlavin and junior outdoors hitter Nick Stevenson to brush Ohio Condition.
