Press Release

Homecoming Matches Friday & Saturday

Laira Akin, Sophomore, S/OH, Volleyball

Greetings Bearcat fans!

Not too much to report about in this installment of my blog. We went to Washburn and played a very good match and took a game off the team ranked ninth in the country…not too shabby! We played them on their Pink Out and I must say we had more, and more involved fans, at our own Pink Out. You just can't beat Bearcat fans!

This upcoming week is going to be pretty busy and exciting. We play Fort Hays on Friday and that match is very important to us because we had a very tough match with them the last time we played them and we came out on top so now we have to defend our home court against them. I think we're all very excited and getting ourselves ready to kick some more Fort Hays butt!

The very next day we get to play Emporia again and I think we've got a score to settle. The last time we played them, I went out with an injury, so I personally have a point to prove and I plan on proving it with a vengeance!

So anyway everyone should come see us play. Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 6 p.m.!! Be There!!

Until next time
