Recent success of KU women’s sports teams has meant more coverage for them on campus media.

Dunbar: The Horejsi Family Athletics center is home to the Kansas women’s volleyball team. But the majority of students here at KU don’t even know where this building is.

D: With a record of 19-4 and a national ranking of 17, the team is having the best season in school history.

D: The only problem is, not enough people on campus realize the success the team is having and the hard work they put in.

Kresin: “People don’t realize how hard the girls work everyday. They have morning workouts at like five in the morning, and then they come to practice from…sometimes it starts at 1 p.m., 12 p.m. and practice all the way until 5 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. or so. They put in quite a few hours that most people don’t recognize.”

D: This semester, Ryan McCarthy, the sports editor of the Daily Kansan, has pushed to get more coverage of women’s sports into the paper.

D: By doing this, he says, he hopes to help the teams gain notoriety around campus, and increase attendance at games.

D: For Wordsthatendinball, I’m Evan Dunbar.
