WATCH Slippery Rock and Charleston (WV)'s 1:30 volley

  Slippery Rock and Charleston (WV) combined for 71 hits in an intense 1:30 back-and-forth volley on Sunday.

Slippery Rock volleyball is off to a great start. After a disappointing 2016 that The Rock finished 13-19, they are off to an 8-0 start, tied for the second best start in program's history.

Slippery Rock has certainly had to work for it, however.

Saturday saw The Rock pick up two more wins, first defeating Notre Dame College and then Chareston (WV). Slippery Rock shut out Charleston in the second match, winning in three straight matches. But not before an intense exchange between the two teams occured.

Slippery Rock and UC went back and forth for a minute and a half. The two teams combined for 71 hits before Slippery Rock wound up with the point. Save after save, dig after dig, the volleyball simply didn't want to touch the floor.

Slippery Rock looks to extend its hot start in next weekend's Atlantic Region Crossover. The Rock will close out the tournament against Charleston for the second time in a week. Hopefully, both teams are well rested in case another long volley occurs.
