    The Bulldog volleyball team's challenging non-conference schedule continues this weekend when Fresno State visits the campus of the University of California for the 2010 Hilton Garden Inn Classic

    The 'Dogs will meet the Big East's Seton Hall at 4:30 p.m. today along with No. 10 California and UC Davis tomorrow in Haas Pavilion.

    Fresno State, under the leadership of third-year head coach Lauren Netherby-Sewell, embraces every opportunity to compete against the top tier programs to establish her expectation of competing at the highest level and fostering the growth and development of a young and talented roster.

    Before the 2010 season, the Western Athletic Conference coaches showed their respect for the Bulldogs by picking Fresno State to finish third in the conference.

    The HGI Classic is the final road tournament of the season for the 'Dogs with each opponent providing Fresno State a chance to build for the upcoming conference slate of games.
