FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – As part of Friday night’s fan promotions against LSU, the University of Arkansas volleyball team will host Daddy-Daughter Date Night at Barnhill Arena. First serve of the SEC matchup is scheduled for 7 p.m. and will mark the second meeting of the season between the Razorbacks and Tigers. Individual tickets are $5 for adults while children 17 years and younger receive free admission.
Dads and their daughters can enjoy a prematch meal before cheering on the Razorbacks. After the match, the court will be cleared for a daddy-daughter dance with DJ Derrick and special characters from Spotlight Characters.
Arkansas enters the weekend having won eight of nine matches on its home floor this season. The Razorbacks have played in front of four home crowds of 1,000 or more fans this season, including two top-10 attendance figures. In its second season under head coach Jason Watson, the team carries a 16-7 overall record and a 6-5 mark in SEC play.
After a five-set win at Ole Miss (Oct. 29), sophomore setter Rachel Rippee was named the SEC Setter of the Week for the second time this season. She is second in the SEC and 13th in the NCAA with 11.58 assists per set and has set Arkansas to a .256 team hitting percentage which is 34th in the country. Redshirt senior Pilar Victoria is the SEC and NCAA leader at 5.75 kills per set.
