The Mercy McAuley volleyball is preparing for its season later this month by adhering to health and safety guidelines for the sport.

Also, Mercy McAuley athletic director and volleyball coach Denise Harvey discusses the start of fall sports and how her student-athletes have adapted to the new health and safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"This is one of the most unique things in that one day I feel like I can feel very confident about an outcome and then the very next day I can be very deflated," Harvey said. "So this is another challenge just to kind of keep that even-keel positive look about it."
