Rider Hosts Providence
Tuesday Night in Alumni Gym

LAWRENCEVILLE--Home sweet home; for the Rider University student body and for the Bronc volleyball team.

With classes scheduled to begin Wednesday, Rider's almost 6,000 students are back on campus and Alumni Gymnasium is back in service after renovations with the volleyball looking to serve up a win over Providence Tuesday night.

Rider (3-2) has won three out of four matches all-time against the Friars.  The teams last met on September 8, 2007 when the Broncs blanked Providence 3-0 at the Quinnipiac Invitational, 30-28, 30-24, 31-29.

The Broncs are coming off a five-set win over Fairleigh Dickinson on August 29 that saw senior Stephanie Nagy (Muscatine, Iowa/Muscatine) compile 13 kills and two blocks with senior Brittany Gajewski (Whitehouse Station/Hunterdon Central Regional) adding a career-high 40 digs in the two hour match.

Rider (2-2) opened the 2012 season 2-0 for the first time in eight years, winning at St. Francis (NY) 3-2 after trailing two sets to none before sweeping Howard University 3-0.

The Broncs battled Lafayette and Lehigh in the Lehigh Valley on August 26 before losing each match in four sets.

Rider is led by sophomore Jaclyn Webber (Anaheim, Calif. (Canyon) with 2.60 kills per set, sophomore Ashlee Amatulli (Menifee, Calif. (Temecula Valley) with 4.95 assists per set and Gajewski with 5.14 digs per set.  Gajewski enters play with 829 digs in her Rider career.

Providence enters play 1-8, having defeated Rider's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference rival Saint Peter's 3-1 on August 29 in Jersey City.

The Friars lost four matches at the Hofstra Invitational to open the season and lost all four matches at the Duquesne/Robert Morris Invitational this past weekend.

Tuesday marks Providence's 10th match in a row away from home to open the season and the Friars will have completed 20 matches in a row on the road before opening their home schedule October 7 against Stony Brook.

Speaking of the road, Rider hits the highway for seven matches in a row, following the match against Providence.  The Broncs play three times in Baltimore at the Marriott Greyhound Challenge September 7-8 (Loyola, Morgan State, Charleston Southern) before a trip to Philadelphia to face La Salle on September 12.  The annual MAAC trip to Western New York against Niagara and Canisius takes place September 22-23 before Rider completes the road trip with a match at Manhattan September 26.

Rider returns to Alumni Gym for a pair of MAAC contests September 29-30 facing Fairfield and Iona, both matches starting at 1pm.

For those unable to make the match Tuesday at 6pm, free livestats (GameTracker) will be available on GoBroncs.com along with BroncVision, the pay per view video stream of Rider Athletics.

In addition, live tweets will be broadcast via Twitter by following @RiderAthletics.
