Volleyball announces season opener against Mercer

WKU Volleyball will begin its 2020-21 season on Saturday, Oct. 3, according to an email from Jessica Leifheit, Associate Director of Communications and Media Relations for WKU Volleyball.

The team’s first match will be at home against Mercer University. This will be the schools’ fourth meeting, but the first time since 2005.

WKU’s first serve against Mercer is scheduled for noon CST.

This match will be the first competitive match played by the team since Dec. 6, 2019. The team has not been actively playing competitive matches due to COVID restrictions.

“The team was just getting underway in its spring schedule when everything was shut down due to COVID-19 in March,” Leifheit said Wednesday in her email.
