Jenny Hazelwood starts her fifth season at Mississippi State today with a very young team.
There are several questions that will have to be answered, and the former Bulldog volleyball player will be using this weekend as a test for her young team.
"Even if we are having some successes, there's always going to be some things we need to improve on," Hazelwood said. "I think that this will be a good learning weekend on top of just getting to play and match up against somebody else.
"We are so excited. It's always like this through preseason. Your'e just ready to play somebody else."
