The Greensboro College volleyball team was voted eighth by the coaches in the USA South preseason poll. The Pride are looking to get back on track after a disappointing 11-24 campaign in 2011. Greensboro received 47 total votes while defending champion Christopher Newport was selected first with 121 votes.

Five full-time starters return this season, led by All-Conference outside hitter and libero Danielle Simpson, who is the top returner in digs and assists. Hitter Liz Widenhouse is back after an impressive freshman campaign that saw her tally a team leading 344 kills.

The Pride are also bringing seven newcomers to campus to create depth and competition. Greensboro will open the season on the weekend of September 1-2 with the Averett University Cougar Classic.
