Volleyball Preps for Busy Weekend

Updated:

Press Release PSU: 

The Pittsburg State volleyball team is prepped for a busy weekend with three matches in three days, including two home matches and two MIAA match ups.

The weekend begins for the Gorillas with a road, MIAA meeting with Missouri Western at 7 p.m. The Griffons are currently 11-12 overall and 4-5 in league matches, placing them eighth in the conference standings.

On Friday, Pitt State will play its first home match since October 10 as they host a non-conference meeting with NAIA University of Saint Mary at 7 p.m. The Spires have an 8-20 overall record thus far this season. 

Prior to Friday's match the Gorilla Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, in conjunction with the Pitt Crew youth booster club, will host a Halloween themed Kids Day. All kids ages 4-12 are invited to come to John Lance Arena at 5:30 p.m. for free games, face painting, poster making and other fun with Pittsburg State student-athletes. The children are then invited to sit with student-athletes at the volleyball match and take part in a costume contest between sets two and three.

Saturday the Gorillas will return to conference action with a 3 p.m. meeting with Lindenwood. The Lions are fifth in the conference standings with a 4-3 record. They are 7-14 overall.

Saturday is also Rumble in the Jungle Day. High school seniors who have previously registered with the admissions office will be visiting John Lance Arena as part of a day visiting campus and learning about many aspects of college life at Pittsburg State. 

Pittsburg State stands just below Missouri Western with a 3-5 MIAA record and a 12-10 record overall. The team has won each of its last six matches, none of which were conference matches.
