K-State Volleyball European Trip Central

Letter from Head Coach Suzie Fritz

Thank you to everyone who followed us on our journey via kstatesports.com. We recently returned from nine days in Europe. We spent two days in Budapest and Kecskemet, Hungary, two days in Ljubljana, Slovenia and a day and a half in Venice, Italy. It was an incredible experience filled with lots of cultural and educational opportunities, good volleyball and lots of quality time together as a team. We were privileged to have our good friends George and Janet Millikan, as well as Jen and Clint Brock make the trip with us. It would not have been the same without them

We got to spend time with former players and good friends, Vali Hejjas and Rita Liliom in Hungary. It was wonderful to see them. They continue to play and are having great success as professional players in Europe. We were also able to experience great volleyball by playing the Hungarian National Team, as well as the competitive club, Vasas, during our stay. Budapest is one of the most beautiful and underrated cities in Europe. [ Keep Reading ]
