Kansas Volleyball Completes Season Sweep of K-State

Paolo Bruno

The Kansas Jayhawk volleyball team completed the season sweep of Kansas State with a win over the Wildcats in Manhattan.

One of the things that Sheahon Zenger emphasized when he started to look at the athletic program as a whole was the non revenue sports. Yes we all pay the most attention to Kansas basketball, Kansas football and those big money, large event sports that bring the alumni base together. For Zenger though, his job extends well beyond that and into sports like volleyball, track, women's basketball, etc. These are all sports that have suffered at Kansas in recent years but a renewed sense of accountability and a desire to change that trend seems to have started to take hold.

Last year we saw it with the women's basketball team as they made a surprising run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. This year we're seeing it with the volleyball team as coach Ray Bechard has the Kansas women sitting at 21-5 and in sole possession of second place in the Big 12.

Last night, that team successfully completed the season sweep of the Kansas State Wildcats who went into the game ranked no. 17 in the country. The 23rd ranked Jayhawks went on the road, to Manhattan and brought the victory home in what is our new, primary rival not only in the state, but in the league with the departure of Missouri.

Next up for the Jayhawks is a game in Lawrence against no. 3 ranked Texas. This is obviously a huge game for the Jayhawks who will be playing in front of a sold out crowd at home.
