Countdown to First Serve: Seven Days

Countdown to First Serve: Seven Days

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – With the new season just one week away, the UCSB women's volleyball team is premiering its four-part Countdown to First Serve to introduce the 2016 Gauchos. 

First up, the team's two seniors Phoebe Grunt and Elizabeth Sheffield show off their special talents and answer the questions of why they chose UCSB and who has the best Instagram account on the team, among many others.

The Gauchos will open 2016 on the road at the UNLV Tournament from Aug. 26-27 and will later host their annual home tournament the following weekend. Starting on Friday Sept. 2, UCSB will host reigning Mountain West Champion Colorado State, CSU Bakersfield, Baylor, and Pittsburgh. The Gauchos will also take part in marquee Big West matchups like their conference opener versus preseason No. 6 Hawai'i on Friday Sept. 25 in the Thunderdome. For the full 2016 schedule, click here

Season tickets are now available and can be purchased online, at the Ticketing Office in the Intercollegiate Athletics Building, or over the phone at 805.893.UCSB  (8272).
