The Park University women's volleyball program will host an open tryout Saturday, Feb. 9, in the East Dome at Breckon Sports Center in Parkville, beginning at 10 a.m.
The tryout will last through noon and will take place under the direction of head men's and women's volleyball coach Mike Talamantes, who led the Pirates to 27 wins in the women's season, and Park appeared in the top 25 for the first time in school history. In 2012, he led the Park University men to a national championship in the NAIA Men's Volleyball National Invitational Tournament.
"We still need to find pieces that will fit with our program," Talamantes said. "We really want to hear from interested players and I am excited to hear from them."
Park returns two AVCA All-Midwest Region players, Wanessa Siqueira and Lauren Purdy. Purdy was also an NAIA Honorable Mention All-American.
Interested potential student-athletes can contact Talamantes at (816) 584-6493 or by email at Michael.Talamantes@park.edu.
