KU volleyball sets non-conference slate


Kansas University’s Final Four volleyball team will open the regular season on the road at the Bulldog Invitational in Starkville, Miss. The season begins Sept. 2 with host Mississippi State, followed by a Saturday doubleheader against Eastern Washington and Lamar.

During home-opening weekend, the Jayhawks will host the Kansas Invitational with Chicago State, Maryland, and Arkansas.

The following week, Kansas patched together three matches in three days at two different locations. Starting on Sept. 8, Kansas returns to the city where it made history, facing Creighton in Omaha, Neb. — the site of KU’s Final Four appearance last December. The Jayhawks remain in Omaha for a match against Chattanooga the following afternoon on Creighton’s campus.

KU treks back to Lawrence for a home contest against Northern Iowa at Horejsi Family Athletics Center on Sept. 10.

Kansas will face one of its most challenging doubleheader days of the season at the Stacey Clark Classic in West Lafayette, Ind. The Jayhawks open the event against Xavier, followed by a nightcap with perennial Big Ten Conference power Purdue.

Kansas concludes the Stacey Clark Classic on Sept. 17 against Southeastern Louisiana.
