Ohio returns nine letterwinners from last season's MAC East Championship, including All-MAC First Team selection Kelly Lamberti, second-team choice Lexie Hartnett and All-Freshman honoree Chelsea Bilger. That trio, combined with returning starter Faith Robins, two defensive specialists that played every game in 2011, Mollie Geske and Kelly Colyar, and upperclassman Leah Petrovich make the Bobcats a formidable opponent. Ohio also added six newcomers for this upcoming season, including two transfers.
The Bobcats’ non-conference schedule is highlighted by two home tournaments and contests with four top-25 opponents. No. 13 Kentucky, No. 20 Oregon and Notre Dame visit the Convocation Center so make sure to come out and support Ohio Volleyball!
