Cougars Release 2019 Volleyball Schedule
KOKOMO, Ind. – The Indiana University Kokomo volleyball team has officially released the 2019
Cougars volleyball schedule. The 2019 schedule is highlighted by nine regular-season home
matches at IU Kokomo Cougar Gym.
“Our strength of schedule has increased tremendously this season. With only losing one senior,
I thought this group needed to be challenged at a new level. I am excited to see how they rise
to the challenge” Head Coach Heather Hayes added about the 2019 slate. “We will have nine
matches in the pre-season against teams who made the national tournament. We also have
seven matches throughout the season against the always strong Crossroads Conference. I’m
not looking at our win-loss record to be an indicator on whether we had a successful season.
We are preparing the way we need to prepare to help take this program to the next level.”
