As fall sports in the Big East remain postponed, women’s volleyball head coach Allison Yaeger and senior middle blocker Amanda Rachwal broke down how the team has been training and getting ready to play a spring season under the COVID-19 guidelines. “It’s very different,” Yaeger said. “The girls wear masks when we train, and at times, we are conditioning.

Other threats, including Caitlin Koska and Sophia Coffey, also left after their eligibility expired. Thus,...
