Notes: Forced to rebuild following the loss of a strong 2016 senior class, the 2017 Lynn University volleyball team needed time to gel before finding its groove late in the season...the Fighting Knights struggled on the road last season but were able to pick up some key victories at home to finish seventh in the Sunshine State Conference standings...Lynn was picked No. 7 in the 2018 SSC Preseason Coaches Poll...the squad's biggest loss to graduation was four-year player Nicol Colonna, who occupied the starting right side position most of her career and even filled in as the team's primary setter for a majority of last season...Lynn only brings back four returners this season, but all four were an integral part of the lineup a year ago...2017 SSC All-Newcomer Team selection Sonja Udovcic highlights the returning class alongside fellow outside hitter Rafaela Fonseca...middle blockers Marcella De Vuono and Lauren Odom return to continue holding down the front line...the Fighting Knights are poised to have a strong contingent of pin hitters led by Udovcic and Fonseca, along with the additions of sophomore Marine Kinna, junior Siena Kelley, and graduate Paige Fullerton...a pair of Brazilian newcomers in junior Biatriz Souza Berti and freshman Isadora Nicolai will battle it out for primary duties at the setter position...the Blue and White open up the season vs. Valdosta St. at the Embry-Riddle Tournament on Friday, Aug. 24.
