It’s the offseason, which means it’s time to shift a little bit of focus to UK’s other sports. UK’s Volleyball Team is in the middle of their Spring season, and is holding an open practice tonight from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum. Fans are encouraged to come out and watch the team go through drills, and coaches and players will hold a question and answer session so fans can learn more about the sport. The coaching staff will explain each drill as it takes place, and after practice, the team will host a reception for fans that will include food and a chance to get to meet the players.
Head coach Craig Skinner recently signed a six-year extension after taking the program to its second consecutive Sweet 16 finish. Skinner says he’s excited that the sport is growing in popularity: “We are committed to growing the sport of volleyball here in Lexington and Central Kentucky. We’ve seen a real passion to learn more about the game we love here and the team and staff are really looking forward to this event.”
