Horejsi rises anew
KU volleyball on Sept. 10 dedicated the new Horejsi Family Volleyball Arena in a private ceremony for donors and staff. The 2,265-seat, 30,000-square-foot arena replaces the 20-year-old, 1,300-seat Horejsi Family Athletics Center. “I am beyond excited and happy to see volleyball valued in this community, athletic department and in this campus,” said 22nd-year coach Ray Bechard. As Kansas Alumni went to press, the home opener was set for Sept. 12, the first round of the Kansas Invitational. Volleyball opens Big 12 play Sept. 28, against Baylor in Horejsi.
