Dover, Del. (Nov. 8, 2018) --- The Delaware State volleyball team will close out its 2018 season with two MEAC home contests. The Hornets will take on Morgan State on Friday beginning at 6:00 pm and wrap up the season with a Sunday match against Coppin State at 3:00 pm.
The Sunday match will also mark the final Memorial Hall appearance for DSU seniors Sydney Armbrister and Mia Taula.
