Jayhawk Volleyball Prepares To Host Jayhawk Classic

LAWRENCE, Kan. -

The Kansas volleyball team hosts the Jayhawk Classic this weekend in the Horejsi Family Athletics Center. KU (4-3 overall) is slated to play Friday against St. Peter's (noon) and Wyoming (7 p.m.) and will wrap up the tournament Saturday in a noon match versus Morehead State.

A Glance At the Jayhawks

The Kansas volleyball team will enter the Jayhawk Classic on a two game winning

streak and 4-3 overall record. KU opened its 2007 home season last Tuesday

with a 3-0 sweep over UMKC. Savannah Noyes led the team with 10 kills.

Freshman Karina Garlington added seven hitting a team-best .462.

Newcomer Jenna Kaiser continues to lead KU for the third straight week averaging

2.48 kpg. Fellow freshman Melissa Manda steadies the defense with 3.31

dpg.

Jayhawk Classic History

• The 2007 Jayhawk Classic marks the 14th year of the tournament and 11th

consecutive since its inaugural start in 1990.

• Kansas owns a 32-8 all-time record during the Jayhawk Classic and has gone

undefeated in the tournament seven times, most recently in 2005.

Breaking In

Senior Emily Brown broke into KU's top-10 career list Tuesday in the team's

contest versus UMKC. Brown registered three kills to giver her 938 for her career and move her into the number 10 spot on the Kansas career kill list.

The First 30

It appears that game one is the most critical for the Jayhawks. KU has come

away victorious in every match but one when they record a win in the opening

game. Of Kansas' three losses, the team has lost game one two of the three

times.
