“We actually have an identity going into the season, which is something we were kind of lacking last year,” said Mike Gardner, who returns for the third season of his second stint as Tabor’s head coach. He led the Bluejays to a 20-3 record as headcoach in 2005 and 2006.

Returning seniors include outside hitter Abbey Burns, middle blocker Jessica Wollenburg and outside hitter Katie Vogts.
