Want to know when you can watch the defending national champions take the court next season? We’ve got you covered.
On Thursday morning, UK Athletics released the entire regular season schedule for Kentucky Volleyball’s upcoming 2021 season. This year, the ‘Cats will play 13 home games at Memorial Coliseum and will encounter a brand new SEC schedule format that includes both single-game matches and series matches against intraconference foes.
The season is set to start on Aug. 27 and Aug. 28 with the University of Dayton’s Tournament, although exact times and opponents have not yet been announced. Non-conference action will run through Sept. 19 when UK takes on Stanford at home with SEC play picking up on Sept. 24 against Missouri and running through the season-finale series against Florida on Nov. 26 and 27.
Below is the entire regular-season schedule.
The squad will look a little bit different his season without National Player of the Year Madison Lilley along with All-Americans Gabby Curry and Avery Skinner, but head coach Craig Skinner will return two All-Americans in Alli Stumler and Azhani Tealer along with All-American Honorable Mention Madi Skinner. Coach Skinner has also brought in another impressive recruiting class.
