“With the addition of a seventh state tournament site, the KSHSAA has been very pleased with the willingness of all host communities to work together to allow member schools the opportunity to have state tournament games in well maintained, fan friendly venues. Hosting state tournament events is truly a community effort and we appreciate all parties working together to provide a quality experience for everyone,” said Gary Musselman, KSHSAA Executive Director. “We continue our efforts to finalize our state volleyball tournaments for 2011 and will make an announcement as soon as we are able,” continued Mr. Musselman.
