The Knoxville Volleyball Squad will embark on its conference opener tonight in Grinnell. The Panthers stand at 5-6 on the season and are coming off last week’s A-D-M Invitational where they went 3-2. Coach Eric Fee says the Little Hawkeye Conference will be balanced this season with no single team running away with the championship. He adds if the girls can play well and stay focused, they could finish in the top half. Fee also says he likes the fact that tonight will be the only match in a span of nine days as their last match was last Tuesday at A-D-M.
