Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Since entering the Summit League, the Bison

volleyball team has been the class of the conference with three NCAA tournament trips in five years. Last year was the first drop-off for NDSU as the team failed to qualify for the conference tournament.

Kari Thompson enters her fourth year at the helm and may have her toughest job in front of her. The Bison have eight true freshmen on the team.

Kari Thompson- Fourth Year Head Coach: "We got a young team we are just gonna go out there and just put whatever we can on the court and see how we end up and the next day evaluate it and move on. I think we are gonna have some successes that will surprise some people and maybe some pretty bad losses just 'cause we are up and down every day in practice right now. I see a different team just 'cause we are young and new and inconsistent."

Danielle Dombeck- Senior Libero: "It's definitely going to be a challenge but I think we are definitely going to prove people wrong. You have to get in the top six to make it to the tournament and I think we can definitely be in the top three."
