LIVONIA, Mich. -- The 2006 Madonna University volleyball team made their season debut Wednesday with a 2-2 tie versus a star-studded alumni roster at the Activities Center.

With 17 players suiting up one more time at MU, including 12 All-Americans, the alumni were able to take games two and four of the four game series.

"There are good and bad parts to having a great program," joked coach Jerry Abraham following the match.  "In all seriousness we needed a chance to see our team against quality live competition and this is about as good as it gets."

The Crusaders, who found out moments before the match that they are ranked No. 5 in the NAIA preseason top-25 poll, will make their regular season debut next Thursday, August 24th when they host Wayne State University at 7:00 pm.
