Volleyball set to scrimmage

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Arkansas volleyball team will scrimmage Saturday at 10 a.m. in Barnhill Arena.

The scrimmage is open to the public.

The Razorbacks have been hard at it since reporting to camp Aug. 9. The team, under the direction of first-year head coach Robert Pulliza, is preparing for the fast-approaching 2008 season which opens on the road Aug. 29.

Saturday’s inter-squad scrimmage is likely to be the final team practice prior to the start of classes Monday, Aug. 25. Arkansas will continue to practice Monday-Wednesday, before departing Thursday for the opening tournament in Colorado. Arkansas opens the home schedule against Tulsa Wednesday, Sept. 10, at 6 p.m.
