There were questions how long it would take some UND athletic programs to become competitive when they moved to Division I.
There is no definitive answer and one won't be coming for a while.
But there certainly can't be many complaints about the opening weekend of UND's second Division I season.
The Sioux volleyball team won the title at the Best Western Sycamore Classic in Terre Haute, Ind., on Saturday by posting wins against Southern Illinois-Edwardsville and Akron. On Friday, the Sioux beat host Indiana State and Missouri-Kansas City.
The most UND trailed in any of its four matches was five points.
On Friday, the UND soccer team beat Northern Iowa 3-1, a win that snapped a two-game losing streak against the Panthers of the Missouri Valley Conference.
