Spotlight on Melissa Manda

Nov. 23, 2010


University of Kansas defensive specialist Melissa Manda has left her mark on the Jayhawk volleyball program. Not only is the senior from Wichita, Kan., a standout on the court, but she shines in the classroom as well. The school’s all-time digs leader is also a proud member of the Academic All-Big 12 First Team in 2008, 2009 and 2010. Kansas athletics media relations student assistant Matt Franzblau takes us to Lawrence, where Manda is hard at work trying to get KU back to the NCAA volleyball tournament.
