The 2020 Indiana State volleyball squad will take a trip across the Atlantic in June for a chance to compete in Italy before the season starts.
This will be Sycamore volleyball’s first-ever overseas trip and helps give ISU the opportunity to take a big step forward in being competitive in the Missouri Valley Conference. The volleyball team, including the 2020 recruiting class, will report for ten additional practices on campus prior to the trip.
Indiana State is holding an apparel fundraiser through Pacesetter Sports and accepting donations for the trip through the ISU Foundation.
The trip is scheduled to take place from June 10-19, 2020 and will also serve as an educational opportunity, giving the Sycamores a chance to learn about Italian culture and history in cities such as Florence, Milan and Rome.
