As a former collegiate volleyball player, there's not much that beats the feeling of pulling on your home jersey just before you take the court. The women's volleyball team at University of California-Berkeley has pulled on their Blue and Gold jerseys to take on their opponents with pride. Better known as Cal, the Golden Bears boast a great program with strong traditions since 1975.
Leading their efforts in 2013, is stellar head coach, Rich Feller. This is his 15th season with the Golden Bears, leaning on his extensive volleyball experience to guide the team. He is joined by assistant coaches, Ben Bodipo-Memba and Jennifer Dorr, and volunteer assistant, Lazaro Beltran on the sidelines to do whatever it takes for a successful season.
The team is off to a great start, going 7-2 as of September 24, 2013. The Golden Bears take on Stanford tomorrow night at 7:30pm. Watch it on the Pac-12 Network or stay tuned to Cal's social media pages for more information. Good luck!
