JONESBORO (AStateRedWolves.com) – The Arkansas State volleyball program is hosting an alumni barbecue Aug. 16 beginning at 11 a.m. at the Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Ark.
The event begins with a meet and greet session that leads up to a barbeque lunch set to be served at noon. After lunch an intra-squad scrimmage is set for 3 p.m., with an alumni match to follow an hour later. The cost of the event is $20 and is open to the public.
“I'm extremely excited to get as many former players here as we can so they can get to know the players on our team for the upcoming season,” A-State volleyball coach David Rehr said. “I know our players will listen to any advice they have carefully. It's also a great opportunity for the fans to socialize with our current players and the former players they used to watch play here. It will also give the fans a chance to get a sneak peak at the current team and watch some of the former greats play.”
This is a great opportunity for former A-State volleyball players to get together and socialize with each other, former lettermen from other teams, and their families along with getting to meet the 2014 Red Wolves' volleyball squad. It's also a great opportunity for the fans to get to know the current team and meet former players.
Fans are encouraged to attend and should contact the Arkansas State volleyball office for more information at 870-972-3524 or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Former alumni should contact Coach Rehr at email@example.com, Margie McGee at ValleyViewVolleyball@yahoo.com, Jo Beth Mathis at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Craig Cummings at email@example.com if they are interested in attending.
