Big 12 volleyball honors KU trio

August 6, 2013


Three Kansas University volleyball players earned spots on the Big 12 Preseason Team, the conference announced Tuesday.

Senior middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc, an All-Big 12 First Team member and second-team All-American last season, was honored for the second consecutive year. Senior setter Erin McNorton and junior outside hitter Sara McClinton, also an All-Big 12 first-teamer, earned their first selections.

“We’re a veteran team and some of these kids had success last year,” 16th-year KU coach Ray Bechard said. “There are people in the Big 12 who feel like they are capable of repeating those performances. But it’s a situation where everything starts over and each and every one of our team members — including these three — will have to go out and play at a high level to, most importantly, create opportunity for our team to succeed.”

The Jayhawks kick off their season with the annual Crimson and Blue Match at 1 p.m. on Aug. 24 at Horejsi Center and open against Central Arkansas on Aug. 30 in Tucson, Ariz.
