However, this line from the article makes me almost long for Sean Snyder as head coach: "Schulz said then that the search for Snyder’s successor would be conducted aggressively and nationally, looking for someone with previous head coaching experience — similar to the search that landed men’s basketball coach Bruce Weber."

Sunday marked the official start of Kansas State's volleyball season. This years team looks to build off of last season's 22 wins, and with many returning players including five who played in 111 of KSU's 116 sets, they have a good chance of increasing that win total.
