COLUMBIA, Mo. – The University of Missouri volleyball team will close its spring campaign on Saturday with a five-set match against Kansas State. The Tigers will face the Wildcats at KC MAVS, 16501 West 116th Street in Lenexa, Kansas.

Mizzou will face Kansas State at 1:30 p.m., CT Saturday. The competition is open to the public and free admission.

Saturday marks the fourth spring competition for MU in 2024 after most recently competing against Saint Louis on April 19. The Tigers started their spring matches on April 6 in Kansas City against Creighton, Rockhurst, Wichita State, and Kansas City.

Mizzou went 18-13 in 2023 under the direction of first-year head coach and SEC Coach of the Year, Dawn Sullivan. Missouri made its 18th NCAA Tournament appearance in program history and first appearance since 2020 this past fall.
