Countdown to First Serve: Four Days

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – With the new season just four days away, the UCSB women's volleyball team will continue its four-part Countdown to First Serve, which is introducing the 2016 Gauchos. 

For the second video, fans will be introduced to redshirt sophomore defensive specialist Sydney Bast and junior outside hitter Chanel Hoffman.

The Gauchos will open 2016 on the road at the UNLV Tournament this weekend 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
