Volleyball to Host Staff & Faculty Night on Wednesday

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 24, 2016 – On Wednesday, Oct. 26 Washington University in St. Louis volleyball will hold a Staff and Faculty Appreciation night in conjunction with the fight against breast cancer during its match against Greenville College at 7 p.m. in the Field House of the Athletic Complex.

"As a volleyball program, we would like to thank the faculty and staff of WashU while digging for a cure," said head coach Vanessa Walby. "Our students are able to balance their passion for academics and the sport they love because of the university's faculty and staff."
