In preparation for its season opener on Friday, Aug. 27, the Kansas volleyball team will hold an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Horejsi Family Athletics Center. The event is free to the public.

The evening will begin with a volleyball alumni barbeque at 5 p.m. just outside the Horejsi Center. Following dinner, alumni and fans are invited to come watch the Kansas volleyball team in action for the first time in 2010 as they hold an intrasquad scrimmage beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Kansas, which finished 16-14 overall last season, welcomes back nine letterwinners. Senior Preseason All-Big 12 Team selection Karina Garlington is one of four returning starters, along with the team’s top offensive threat from 2009 in junior Allison Mayfield.

The Jayhawks’ regular season begins on Aug. 27 at the Bluejay Invitational hosted by Creighton.
