They open regular-season play on Saturday hosting Mid-America Christian at 3 p.m., with a women’s game starting at 12:30.

The Mac women’s volleyball team has a 6:30 p.m. scrimmage Wednesday in Hesston. It will be a homecoming for new Mac coach Jessica Cleveland, who was the head coach last year at Hesston. The Bulldogs are picked seventh in the KCAC preseason poll. They open the season for real on Friday in Marshall, Mo., with matches against Oklahoma City and Central Methodist and then play Avila and Missouri Valley on Saturday.
