Volleyball Breezes Through Spring Tournament

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State volleyball swept through a weekend spring tournament in Fayetteville, Ark., 8-0, as the squad works toward the fall 2007 campaign.


"We are still working on playing at a higher level consistently,” said associate head coach Jeff Grove. “We saw some positives this weekend but also saw some significant areas where we need to improve in order to be one of the top teams in the Big 12 conference."


The Wildcats opened with a 30-25 win over Creighton and followed with wins of 30-22 and 30-25 against the host Lady Razorbacks. K-State continued with a 30-24 win over Memphis and garnered a pair of 30-21 wins over Missouri State. The Wildcats concluded play with wins of 30-19 and 30-25 against Pittsburg State (Kan.).


In the eight games, junior-to-be Megan Farr registered 26 kills on a .450 hitting percentage. Making her return to the floor from a knee injury that took her entire 2006 campaign, junior-to-be Rita Liliom tallied a team-high 37 kills on a .250 hitting percentage.


Kansas State will conclude its spring schedule on April 14 at the 2007 Great Lakes Center Spring Invitational in Chicago. The field includes 23 teams from across the nation including Big 12 members Kansas and Texas.
