The Mountaineers volleyball team has played a total of nine games this season; with eight of them in either the Penn State Classic, Hawaii Tournament, or South Dakota Classic. 

With an overall record of 3-6, the start of the season has been a slow one. In the Penn State Classic, things were looking up for WVU as they took the first two matches beating Loyola 3-2 and Duquesne 3-0. Unfortunately, they would fall to Penn State in their last game 3-1. 

The season’s rocky started has continued as the Mountaineers went on to lose three straight games in the Hawai’i Classic to UCLA, Hawai’i, and Texas State. In the team’s most recent tournament in South Dakota, they won one game against Northern Colorado and fell to South Dakota and CSU Bakersfield. 

Despite the start, there have been some stand-out players. Adrian Eli leads the team in both Kills (100) and Aces (11). While Kamiah Gibson leads the team in assists (219) and Tierney Jackson leads the team in blocks (34.0). 

On September 15th the Mountaineers will be returning home to host the Mountaineer Invitational. They will be facing Merrimack (2-5) Binghamton (7-2) and Delaware State (8-2). 


The WVU Men’s Golf team recently completed a two-day invitational hosted by Minnesota University. 

On the first day, senior Trent Tipton and Sophomore Todd Duncan lead the way and helped put the right foot forward for the Mountaineers. 

Tipton would go on to shoot a 73 and a personal best 67 which landed him 2 under par and tied for 21st place. Duncan would shoot a 69 then a 71 which also ended up making him 2 under par and tied for 21st place. 

On the second day, Duncan was once again a bright spot for the Mountaineers. Shooting another 2 under par which would put his final placement at 25th. Tipton would also go on to have another good day on the course as he shot one under par and placed 29th at the Minnesota Invitational. 

WVU would go on to finish the tournament in 14th place and shoot a total of +8 as a team. 

The next time the Mountaineers will tee off is October 17-19 as they head to Hockley, Texas for the Big 12 Match Play Championship.
