Miami Red Hawks

Miami RedHawks

Fresh off of two 3-set sweeps of MAC West opponents Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan, the Red Hawks return to the friendly confines of Millett Hall next weekend. On Thursday, October 23, they take on the Toledo Rockets. The match starts at 7 pm (after the Borderline Informational Meeting). On Friday, old nemesis Ball State comes to Oxford for another 7 pm contest. Please plan to attend the matches and support the team. Remember when Jenny Ingle came to your practice and helped you work on hitting and blocking? What about when Sarah Chaney came to practice that Saturday morning and worked with your team?

Tryouts for Kaepa Borderline's 2014-2015 Season

We are receiving quite a few registrations for tryouts. Thanks for submitting those in a timely manner. Please make sure that you also register on our website. We use that list to send out mass e-mails and call parents when we have specific questions, determine the number of coaches we need to conduct tryouts; and also the number of T-shirts we need. We noticed that several registrants have not also applied on the website, and we don't want you to miss any correspondence. Thanks!
