The Kansas Jayhawks, led by senior setter Maggie Anderson (19) go crazy after beating the Longhorns in five sets on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016 at the Horejsi Center.
Kansas volleyball head coach Ray Bechard has promoted director of operations Maggie Bowen to assistant coach for the 2018 season. Bowen replaces former assistant coach Kelly Files, who resigned for personal reasons after coaching spring practices.
Kansas seniors Maggie Anderson, Tayler Soucie and Cassie Wait, junior Kayla Cheadle and redshirt freshman Patricia Montero received first-team Academic All-Big 12 honors, the conference announced Tuesday. Juniors Ainise Havili, Tori Miller and Madison Rigdon earned second-team recognition.
It took five sets and traveled through dozens of peaks and valleys, but the Kansas volleyball team finally knocked off Big 12 king Texas in five sets (17-25, 25-11, 27-25, 12-25, 15-10) at Horejsi Family Athletics Center on Saturday night. By Matt Tait
