The Central Connecticut volleyball team will host Fairleigh Dickinson at Detrick Gym on Saturday afternoon at 5 p.m. The Blue Devils (9-7, 0-2 NEC) and Knights (1-14, 0-2 NEC) are both looking for their first Northeast Conference victory of the season.
Here are some notes on the Blue Devils heading into Saturday's match:
• The Blue Devils posted a 9-5 record in non-conference play this season. The 14 non-conference matches were highlighted by a tournament victory in the CCSU Invitational.
• Head Coach Linda Sagnelli's squad won the CCSU Invitational with victories over UHart, NJIT and Fordham. The sweep of the tournament gives CCSU a 3-0 record at home so far this season.
• The Blue Devils had a seven match winning streak earlier this season, which was the program's longest since the 2007 season.
