BRISTOL, Tenn. – With the men's volleyball season just around the corner, the King University men's volleyball team will be having their annual alumni match on Saturday, January 11 at the Student Center Complex. The team is also using the event as a fundraiser for the Oklahoma City tornadoes that took place last spring as they will be taking donations to send to the relief fund.
This will be the first time fans will be able to see the 2014 version of the Tornado as they take on former King graduates of the program in a tune up for the regular season which starts next weekend. The match is scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m., in the Student Center Complex, and admission to the contest is free.
King wanted to use this opportunity as fundraiser as well since one of their players, Nick Serowski, hails from the Oklahoma City area. Fans will be able to make donations that will go directly to the Oklahoma City Tornado Relief Fund. They will also have some drawings for fans to win prizes throughout the match.
The Tornado open the 2014 season at home on January 17 and 18 when the host the King University Invitational. King faces both Limestone College and Coker College on Friday before taking on Belmont Abbey College and Quincy University on Saturday.
