Our newest Pilot, Alyssa Muraoka.

A libero at Mid-Pacific, Muraoka earned all-league recognition in both 2018 and 2019, captaining the Owls to win the ILH D2 Championship in 2018. That year Muraoka landed all-state honors, while leading her team in both digs and aces. In 2019, she led her team in both categories again, as well as in blocks, kills, and assists.

Here are the results of the WCC Coaches preseason poll:

Team (First Place Vote), Points
1. BYU (9), 81
2. San Diego (1), 70
3. Pepperdine, 68
4. Loyola Marymount, 57
5. Santa Clara, 49
6. Saint Mary's, 38
7. Gonzaga, 29
8. Pacific, 27
9. San Francisco, 19
10. Portland, 12

Brent Crouch built a very strong volleyball team at UP, it is too bad that Jeff Baxter destroyed it before getting fired in midseason a few years ago.  

Coach Burton better show a turnaround soon (what is this, her third full year?) or the Pilots are going to go back to being as bad as they were during the pre-Crouch era.

Granted, the WCC is a very good conference, but UP should at least be competitive!!

It's only Megan's second season as the head coach and after talking with players after the 2019 season when Baxter got fired there wasn't much positivity. Burton I think has a lot of players to her liking and how she is using Noelani and Paloma things should be better than the spring season.

She's growing the program her way and with her Hawaiian connection along with Aven and Dylan they have a solid recruiting line to the islands and I believe if you give her a real chance you will see the improvement you're looking for. I've been to the practices and scrimmage there are some nice things, but you can't jump ship after a first year covid season when a program retools.

The Pilots opened up their 2021 season with a victory over the Nevada Wolfpack, Coach Burton's most recent stop before UP, winning the match 3-1.

The Wolfpack took set 1 (25-23) and the Pilots responded by winning three straight sets (25-18 / 25-22 / 25-21)

Jayde Harris led the way with 14 kills, followed by Paloma Bowman (13) and Ryann Gregg (11), who's getting some PT this season after not playing in the spring season.

Paloma Bowman making a name for herself in her first match in a Pilot uniform she goes for a Triple-Double (13 kills, 23 assists and 18 digs)

The Pilots come away with a 3 set sweep of Idaho in their second match of the day. (25-22, 25-13, 25-20)

At one point the Pilots were swinging .340 (good average is like baseball .300) Jayde Harris had 15 Kills one off of her career high.

The Pilots 2-0 already tying the match win total from the spring season. As a volleyball fan, I'm beyond excited to see these ladies play in the Chiles Center come September.

The Volleyball team, now 3-3 on the season, will not be in the Chiles Center this week, but will be playing in the PDX Classic in PSU's Viking Pavilion this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

If you have not seen the Viking Pavilion or the 2021 Pilots, this is your chance!

Thursday vs. PSU @ 7pm
Friday vs. UTEP @ 3:30pm
Saturday vs. Grand Canyon @ 10am (an hour earlier than currently listed on the Pilots website)

Stopped in to watch some of the Pilots vs. Vikings volleyball this evening, and it really wasn't even close as the Vikings overcame UP in 4 sets.

Anytime UP beats Gonzaga in any sport it is a good thing, and on Saturday afternoon the Pilots swept an error prone Bulldog team, 25-20, 25-17, and 25-19.

I know very little about volleyball, but it was fun to watch as all the players seems to be super-amped and having fun, even when points were scored against them. scratch
