Lady’Back volleyball take on alumni

FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas volleyball team scrimmages the alumni Saturday at 7:00 p.m. in Barnhill Arena. The Lady’Backs started practice Aug. 9, with two-a-day drills and have a chance to test those skills in a match-like setting. "This is chance for the coaching staff to take a look at the team in a more game-like setting," said Arkansas head coach Chris Poole. "It’s also a chance for fans to come back and see some of the great players who have gone through the program." The event is free to the public.

Some of the alumn scheduled to attend include Denise Baez, the first Lady Razorback recruit, and Tina Rico who played with Baez on the first team in 1994. In addition, all-Americans Jessica Field Phelan and Kim Storey Chronister as well as honorable mention all-Americans Sara Kincaid, Roberta Tarnauskaite Trandev and Denitza Koleva will be on hand.
