Maroon and Gold Scrimmage This Saturday

Aug 18, 2022

TEMPE, Ariz. – In preparation for the season and to showcase the team to the fans, Sun Devil Volleyball is holding its annual Maroon and Gold Scrimmage this Saturday at 11 a.m. MST in Desert Financial Arena.

The event is free to the public. For fans attending, parking is free in lot 59 and a clear bag policy will be enforced. 

During the scrimmage, ASU will put together two teams to compete. The scrimmage will see student-athletes switching teams throughout as head coach Sanja Tomasevic and her staff mix up the lineups. Throughout the scrimmage, sophomore Megan Reilly will be the MC and will interact with the crowd. Following the event, there will be a live Q&A with Tomasevic and the team. 

The 2022 squad is an experienced group looking to make some noise. Arizona State graduated just one senior last year, returning eight Sun Devils who started a match. With two graduate students, three seniors and six juniors, as well as a talented group of underclassmen, the team is more mature and ready to take on a tough schedule.
 
This season, ASU will face 10 NCAA tournament teams: four in non-conference play and six in the Pac-12. Eight of the 10 teams won at least one game in the tournament, with three making the Sweet Sixteen and one (Georgia Tech) in the Elite Eight. Eight of those teams are ranked in the AVCA Preseason Coaches Poll, including two in the top 10: No. 8 Washington and No. 9 Georgia Tech. After opening the season at home with the Webb-Burbridge Classic, the Sun Devils will be on the road for the next five weeks, taking on the road warrior mentality.
