Kansas Volleyball Hall of Fame Established

Topeka, KS — The Kansas Volleyball Association is establishing the KVA Hall of Fame this year in order to honor and recognize the outstanding individuals who helped organize, shape, transform, advance, coach, officiate, and play the sport of high school volleyball in Kansas after 41 seasons of competition. There have been many outstanding players, teams, coaches, officials, and administrators who have left an indelible mark on the sport and it is those people the KVA would like to honor.

The inaugural class will be inducted this summer in conjunction with the KVA All-Star Match. Nomination forms and additional information can be found on the KVA web site at www.kansasvolleyballassociation.org.
