WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Boilermaker volleyball team returns to campus on August 8 to begin preseason camp with its sights set on the August 30 opener with USC.

Finally, get your first look at the 2013 Boilers at a pair of scrimmages on August 17 at 3 p.m. and August 24 at 6 p.m. Admission is free and both events are open to the public. The first scrimmage will feature the 15 Boilers in action against one another, while the second event will pit the current squad against an all-star team of alumni. You won't want to miss it as stars from the past gear up to battle the 2013 team. Head coach Dave Shondell will coach this year's team, while John Shondell will lead the alumni attack.

The Boilermakers look to add to their string of six Sweet 16 berths in the last eight seasons in 2013, but will face off with 10 NCAA Tournament teams and eight foes that ranked among the final Top 25 poll of 2012.
