ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Head coach Jeff Nelson and the University of New Mexico volleyball team wants to invite you to its season banquet on Feb. 1 at the New Mexico Juniors Volleyball Facility. Registration begins at 5 p.m. with the buffet dinner slated to start at 5:30.
It was truly a special season for the Lobos, who finished in second place in the Mountain West with a 24-7 mark, which also set a record for the most wins in the Jeff Nelson era. It was the most wins for UNM since the 1988 team went 25-5. In addition, the team tied a program record as four players were named All-MW: Lovato, Hannah Johnson, Julia Warren, who was also named Freshman of the Year in the conference, and Chantale Riddle, who also became just the seventh player in program history to earn AVCA All-America honors.
The cost is only $25 so come join the team as it hands out its season awards and celebrates the Lobo careers of its three seniors: Lexi Ross, Lena Skipper and Miquella Lovato. To RSVP, or for more information, please contact director of operations Allison Buck by January 24 to reserve your spot!
