Introducing Men’s Volleyball at Illinois Tech

unnamedIllinois Institute of Technology will start a varsity men’s volleyball team, slated to begin play in the spring of 2016. Men’s volleyball is currently a club sport at the university.

“Our schedule should feature some strong NCAA Division III programs throughout the Midwest,” says Joe Hakes, Illinois Tech’s Athletic Director. “We’re looking forward to being able to field competitive teams within the next few years and think the addition of this sport will attract even more good student-athletes to the university.”

Katie Zulandt, the coach of our women’s team, will coach the men’s team in their inaugural season. Zulandt was named as the Most Valuable Player on her George Washington University squad, and garnered 2nd Team All-A10 Conference status. She also played professionally in both Switzerland and Finland.
