Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Several members of the UWS volleyball team will be racing in this weekend's Dragon Boat Festival in Superior.

'Go Jackets 1' and 'Go Jackets 2' will be the boat names for those on the team who are racing, as they join several other UWS athletes competing in the weekend festival.

The Superior Spartans football team and UMD women's hockey team will also have boats entered into the races at Barker's Island in Superior.

Meanwhile, the Yellowjackets volleyball team has started practice for the 2011 season, which will open September 3 in Milwaukee.

All-time wins leader Lynne Deadrick returns as the UWS head coach as the team looks to improve on a (9-27) record in 2010.
