COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio StateHead coach Geoff Carlston will preview the 2009 women’s volleyball team at 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 24 when the Buckeyes will play a scrimmage match in St. John Arena. Admission is free for the Scarlet and Gray match which will be played as a regular match.

“It is a chance for the team to go through the pregame routine one time before we play our first match,” Carlston said. “It’s also the closest we can get to the real thing so it gives us an opportunity to see how our team does on that stage.”

Ohio State opens the 2009 season with four matches at the William & Mary Tournament Aug. 28-29 in Williamsburg, Va.
