WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Just two months removed from its Elite Eight run, the Boilermaker volleyball team turns its attention toward its spring season.
The Boilermakers are set for four competition dates: March 29 at Ball State, April 5 at the Circle City Invitational in Plainfield, Ind., April 9 at Indiana and April 16 on Belin Court. Purdue will play host to Illinois State, Butler and Indianapolis at the home event.
More details will be available in the coming weeks.
The spring Boilermaker squad features 10 returning players, including third team All-America selection Val Nichol and all-region honoree KiKi Jones. Two newcomers - outside hitter Christina Ambrose (Orlando, Fla.) and setter/outside hitter Lydia Dimke (Ham Lake, Minn.) - joined the roster at the semester break.
Purdue posted a 23-12 record in 2013, including a fifth-place finish in Big Ten play and an appearance in the NCAA Elite Eight.
