But the mood at practice Tuesday afternoon made it clear that the Beavers already feel more relaxed around one another than one would expect for just the second day of preseason practice. “You can tell everybody wants to be here,” said senior libero Kayla DeJong, one of three captains for the Beavers this season.

League coaches picked the Beavers to finish 14th overall this season in a preseason poll released Tuesday.
