Dover, Del. – The Wesley College Volleyball team expects to defend home court heading into the weekend. The Wolverines face off in back-to-back games against the John Jay Bloodhounds and Washington Adventist Shock Sunday afternoon beginning at 1p.m.

The Wolverines began the season with a 3-0 mark, but fell in three of their last four to move to 4-3 on the year. Offensively, the Wesley Volleyball team has amassed a total of 355.0 points, 241 kills and 678 attacks aggressively delivering force to their opponents.

Despite the strong play of the Wesley Wolverines, both Bloodhounds and Shock seek to give a good show. John Jay enters the weekend off of a solid 3-0 victory over the College of Staten Island Dolphins.

During this time of the year last season the Wolverines swept the Bloodhounds 3-0, collecting 30 assists. Jessica Tynes and Tania Rounds both delivered 8 kills apiece. The women expect to repeat last year's performance Sunday.

The Washington Adventist Shock will revisit Wentworth Gym after being swept in both meetings with the Wolverines last season. The Shock play four matches on Friday and Saturday before taking on the Bloodhounds and Wolverines on Sunday. 

Wesley will face off against the Bloodhounds and Shock in the home tri-match in Wentworth Gym. Wesley will take on John Jay at 1 p.m. John Jay and WAU will battle at 3 p.m. and then Wesley will take on WAU at 5 p.m.
