Bemidji State volleyball wrapping up 2010 campaign

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Oct. 27, 2010) – Bemidji State University’s volleyball team is entering the final weeks of its 2010 regular season and remains in contention for its first above-.500 finish since 1999.

The Beavers are 10-12 overall with six games remaining on their regular-season docket. Bemidji State has an experienced roster, with nine players - including 2009 honorable-mention All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference selection Nicole Olson - returning from last year’s squad.

Bemidji State volleyball is under the guidance of first-year head coach Wayne Chadwick. Chadwick was named BSU’s 13th head women’s volleyball coach in June after spending the previous three years as an assistant coach at the University of Tulsa.
