Alumni match gets numbers back to court

Super Bulldog Weekend has grown over the years.
It used to offer opportunities for just football and baseball, but now most every sports team at Mississippi State has an opportunity to showcase their skills.
One of those sports is volleyball.
Volleyball competes in the fall, but head coach Jenny Hazelwood, a MSU alumnus, wanted to get her sport involved in Super Bulldog Weekend, so she spearheaded an alumni match.
"It's been really good," Hazelwood said. "Obviously Super Bulldog Weekend is a big draw for alums to come back. It's the perfect opportunity to play the alumni match. It's been fun to have them back on campus, (and) back in the gym with us. They love it.
"We've always had a pretty good turn out and this year we're going to have a really nice turn out again."
The match will begin at 11 a.m. and Hazelwood expects at least 10 former Bulldog volleyball players to be on hand for the fifth annual event at Newell-Grissom.
