The talk during Northern Iowa's volleyball media day was fresh faces looking to make an immediate impact on the court for the Panthers.

Northern Iowa returns two starters and their only two seniors in Macy Ubben and Shelby Kintzel. They also have just two juniors.

In the off season UNI picked up transfer and former Waverly-Shell Rock star Kinsey Caldwell who was the Mountain West Conference freshman of the year at UNLV.

Despite the fact head coach Bobbi Peterson has a young and inexperienced squad with 12 underclassmen, she is excited about how this group approaches the game.

"The attitude is definitely there.  The effort has been there during a very grueling preseason," Peterson said.  "We're working hard to get better every day, and that's all that you can ask.  And, it's just a really positive group that I'm looking forward to see what they can do this year."

The panthers play their first home match on Wednesday, Sept., 4 against 15th ranked Iowa State.
