Volleyball Opens Season Friday in Colorado

The King College athletic season is underway and the women's volleyball team takes pride in straying farthest away from the nest to open 2011-12. The Tornado will travel to Golden, Colo. to participate in the Oredigger Volleyball Classic presented by Courtyard by Marriott / Residence Inn. The two-day event (Sept. 2-3) is hosted by Colorado School of Mines and includes ten teams participating for the tournament title.
