Kent State Hosting Cross-County Volleyball Classic
Kent State’s Columbiana County campuses will welcome fans from both ends of the county for the inaugural Kent State Volleyball Classic on Monday, Oct. 7, as the Salem Quakers host the East Liverpool Potters. The competition begins at 5 p.m. with the freshmen team match-up, followed by the JV and varsity games.
Kent State Columbiana County will award $500 scholarships to four individual high school seniors attending the game, as well as a set of Bluetooth speakers to two individual high school students. Kent’s mascot, Flash, will be there to cheer on the teams and toss t-shirts into the crowd.
Raffle tickets can be purchased that night for a variety of prizes, including tickets to the MAC men’s and women’s basketball tournaments; Kent State apparel; and items from Libs Market in Salem. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Columbiana County Women’s Leadership Development Scholarship.
At the end of the game, a traveling plaque will be presented to the winning team by Dean Dr. David Dees.
Kent State students, staff and faculty are encouraged to attend the event and put your Golden Flash pride on display. Wear your blue and gold and cheer on both teams!
