FAYETTEVILLE – The spring season has brought a wave of activity for the University of Arkansas volleyball team on the court and in the Northwest Arkansas community. The Razorbacks are two weeks into their spring exhibition schedule and have been part of several community service projects during the semester.
After a weekend trip to Lawrence, Kan., to open their spring campaign, the Razorbacks hosted Tulsa at Barnhill Arena on April 11. The remaining spring schedule takes the Razorbacks to Dallas this weekend for the Lone Star Classic College Showcase and has Arkansas hosting Missouri State in the team’s April 28 spring finale at Barnhill Arena.
Off the court, the Razorbacks have stayed active in giving back to the Northwest Arkansas community. For the second consecutive year, Arkansas hosted a Special Olympics volleyball clinic and later participated in the organization’s Area 3 Games. The Razorbacks also paired with national organization Feed My Starving Children to help pack meals for those in need. Other community service efforts include volunteering during the Walk for Love and visits to the local veterans’ hospital.
Senior-to-be Jasmine Norton, along with several other Razorback student-athletes, filmed a special Thank You video in collaboration with Razorback Foundation Appreciation Day and the on-going support of Razorback athletics by Foundation members. (Video link above)
