PULLMAN, Wash. -- The Washington State volleyball team held a meet and greet evening for the season ticket holders Tues., Aug. 19, in Bohler Gym.
Fourth-year Head Coach Jen Greeny opened the night’s festivities with each class of players introducing themselves. The 16-member team then played a brief one-set intrasquad scrimmage which gave the season ticket holders a view of the newcomers and a preview of the season to come.
After the scrimmage, Greeny along with assistant coach Shannon Hunt, coordinator of operations Katie Hinrichs, and new volunteer coach Kelli Tikker, answered audience questions that ranged from what the officials’ hand signals meant to what Hinrichs does on her computer all during the contests. The players then met and chatted with the season ticket holders and there were refreshments served.
As a special treat for the volleyball season ticket holders, there was an opportunity for them to personalize their season tickets by having their photos take and printed on the tickets this year. Several took advantage of having the players available and included the Cougars in their photos.
