PRINCESS ANNE, MD - The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) women's volleyball team tips off its season this weekend when they play host to the inaugural Kick-Off Classic on Aug. 25-26. The Lady Hawks take on Norfolk State on Friday at 4 pm and then Quinnipiac and Wofford on Saturday at 1 pm and 5pm, respectively. UMES hosts Canisius in a single non-tournament match on Aug. 27 at 2 pm.

The Lady Hawks return five starters from last season's squad including sophomore setter Yael Rozner, the only player in the MEAC to post two triple-double performances last year. Right Side Holiday Eller returns after an injury sidelined her midway through last season while senior captain Stephanie Braxton rejoins her Lady Hawk squad after an impressive stint at libero last year.
