GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Green Bay volleyball head coach Michaela Franklin released her team's spring schedule on Tuesday, one that includes four road contests during March and April. The Phoenix kicks off its spring slate on March 30 in Milwaukee against Franklin's former Marquette squad, then travels to face Wisconsin (April 6), Loyola (April 13) and Milwaukee (April 18).
"I am excited for our spring competition dates," Franklin said. "I believe we have a schedule that will challenge us and prepare us for this coming fall. We have been busy with individual practices and will begin our team practices at the end of the month. It will be nice to put the pieces of the puzzle together on the court."
Franklin, who took over at Green Bay on Jan. 8 after spending the last four seasons as an assistant at Marquette, recently announced the hiring of assistant coach Patrick Bowlin on Feb. 12. Franklin's 2013 squad will consist of eight returning letterwinners, including senior setter Leah Poel (Jenison, Mich.) and senior outside hitter Lyndsay Zabkowicz (Oak Creek, Wis.), who led the team with 303 kills last season.
