Tech VB Team plays Baylor today in Lubbock

Tech Volleyball plays the Baylor Bears on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011 at 6:30pm CST at the United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, TX.

I am hoping the Tech Volleyball team can make adjustments to their play and win some of the matches coming up over the next few weeks.  They have made tremendous strides this season under the direction of new Coach Don Flora.

If you're in 8th grade or younger, wear your Halloween costume and get free admission to the match and get some candy after the match is over.  This game is the annual Halloween Fright Night.

This is the start of the 2nd half of conference play. Tech and Baylor's 9th Conference match.
