Volleyball Hosts Media Day in Outdoor Event
Spartans teach media volleyball skills before pre-season interviews
Aug 23, 2013
East Lansing, Mich. - The Michigan State volleyball team held its annual media day on Friday, August 23. The Spartans, selected No. 14 in the AVCA pre-season poll, begin their season on Saturday with the Green & White scrimmage at Jenison Field House (4 p.m.)
This year's event had a new twist, as the first hour was spent on local sand courts teaching the assembled members of the media some volleyball skills. The skills sessions wrapped with a pair of four-on-four tournaments which had teams which featured both MSU players as well as the media.
After the hands-on sessions, the media had an opportunity to interview the MSU players and coaching staff in advance of the 2013 season. MSU returns all but one starter from a year ago, which includes All-Americans Lauren Wicinski (Geneva, Ill.) and Kori Moster. Wicinski was a unanimous pre-season All Big Ten selection.
Saturday's Green & White Game is free for all fans, and begins at 4 p.m. at Jenison Field House.
