Butler Volleyball Update

SPRING SCHEDULE

It's been a busy offseason for Butler Volleyball. Two players spent time in Colorado Springs with USA Volleyball, the team visited Peyton Manning Children's Hospital and the women have several spring contests upcoming.

The Bulldogs were represented in Colorado Springs by senior setter Morgan Peterson and junior middle blocker Erica Stahl. They were two of 247 athletes participating in the U.S. Women's National Volleyball Team Open Tryout. After tryouts conclude, Peterson and Stahl have a chance to be selected to the U.S. Women's National Team, U.S. Women's National A2 Program or the U.S. Women's Junior National Team.

The Bulldogs visited Peyton Manning Children's Hospital in Indianapolis on Tuesday, Feb. 19. CLICK HERE for a photo gallery of the Bulldogs at PMCH.
