The reigning Big Sky Conference regular season and tournament champion North Dakota Fighting Hawks officially opened their defense of their titles early Tuesday morning during the first day of practice.
Last year, North Dakota rattled off 11 straight wins down the stretch, losing just three sets along the way to earn a regular season conference crown followed by a successful league tournament en route to the first-ever NCAA Division I Tournament in program history.
The Big Sky Conference season begins Sep. 21 as the Fighting Hawks will have to play six of their first eight league matches on the road. UND lost just two league road matches last season and went undefeated at home in conference play, taking an 11-match home winning streak into 2017.
