FIVB-Go USA!!

Before yesterday I had no idea competition Volleyball was such a big deal. And such fun!

While browsing my facebook account I came across a contest sponsored by B98 FM to win a couple tickets to go see a Russia vs USA men’s volleyball match. I won.

The match was played at Koch Arena on the Wichita State University campus in front of a nice crowd. More than I would have expected. This was the first time I had ever been to a volleyball match.

Headquartered in Lausanne Switzerland the league is called the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) World League and they are here at home in Wichita Kansas for the weekend. At least two of the teams, the ones we got to see, are here in town.

The match we witnessed, although a sweep, was a nail biter. The score was within at the most 4 points and most the time 1 or 2. USA won this match 3 games to 0. There is lots of jumping, spiking, saving and sliding on the floor in volleyball.

Tonight, Saturday the 10th they play again.  I would definitely recommend attending.
