Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - The UND volleyball team is spending the holidays away from home, and they aren't complaining.

North Dakota finished the regular season as co-champs, and opens the Big Sky Tournament Friday in Portland as the second seed.

The green and white enter the tourney rolling right now, sweeping their last three matches, UND says it's ready for bigger things.

Ronni Munkeby/UND Sr. Middle Hitter: “I think it's a little emotional, but at the same time it's very exciting going forward, we've had an amazing season. Going back and just being able to be in the tournament and now looking forward and trying to win the tournament it would be the icing on the cake to a wonderful year.”

Ashley Hardee/UND Head Coach: “It shows signs that we are healthy and confident and playing good volleyball and it's a good time to be that way. You always want to peak at the right time and I don't know that this is us peaking cause I still think we got a lot more to improve and to prove to the rest of the leagues. We are going to have to stand up straight and be tough. It's going to be some neutral court games, possibly an away match if we play Portland in the finals so we are gonna have to be tough and play our volleyball.”
