LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech volleyball program will host its annual alumni match at 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon in the practice gymnasium of the United Spirit Arena.
The match will give the Red Raiders one final tune-up before opening the season Aug. 24 at the Boston College Invitational. Under the direction of second-year head coach Don Flora, Tech returns nine letterwinners from last season's 15-17 squad to go along with 11 newcomers and one redshirt returner.
The Red Raiders will receive a stiff test from several of the top Tech players in recent years, including current director of operations Amy Gandy, Amanda Dowdy, Laura Gottschalk, Barbara Conceicao, and Kiley Lyons among others.
The match follows the Fan Fest event held from 2-4 p.m. earlier in the day at Jones AT&T Stadium that will feature both the Red Raider football and volleyball teams.
All fans will receive complementary admission to the match and are encouraged to enter the arena through the north doors and proceed downstairs to the practice gym.
