GRAND FORKS, N.D.-- University of North Dakota Head Volleyball Coach Ashley Hardee welcomes back nearly his entire roster from a season ago, including every starter, as the 2013 season officially begins Saturday with the opening of fall practice. Hardee's team will look to build on a successful 2012 season that saw a young squad reach the Big Sky Conference Tournament in its first year in the league.

UND went 15-17 (10-10) last year and did so without the aid of a single senior. Add that experience to a team that has loads of upperclassmen leadership and North Dakota seems primed for a special season.

Coach Hardee breaks down the first practice and gives some insight on the makeup of his team-- including four newcomers and the focus of the group coming into this season. Check back with all throughout the fall practices for features, season previews, the Big Sky Conference preseason poll release and more in preparation for the coming season.
