Two-time All-American Lisa Henning and the Tigers have a very competitive schedule in 2013.
"Scheduling has become a very important part of what we do here at Mizzou and we feel like we have put together a very competitive nonconference slate that will prepare us for the rigors of SEC play," head coach Wayne Kreklow said. "I think the fact that we host two home tournaments in the nonconference is great for our fans; they will get to see our team play a lot before conference play where in the past, we would host just one tournament. I am also excited with the teams that we have coming into the Hearnes Center during SEC play - it should be a very exciting year of volleyball."
The Tigers, led by senior setter Molly Kreklow (Delano, Minn.) and two-time All-American Lisa Henning (Blue Springs, Mo.), will open the season with the annual Tiger Invitational at the Hearnes Center from August 30-31. This year's field will feature four teams along with the Tigers as South Dakota, Pittsburgh, Idaho State and Arkansas State will play Mizzou inside the Hearnes Center.
The Tigers will then hit the road for tournaments in back-to-back weeks, first with the Yale Invitational in New Haven, Conn., where they will face host Yale, Colgate and Seton Hall from Sept. 6-7. Prior to that tournament, Mizzou will play a Thursday match at Fairfield on Sept. 5 while in the area; the match is not part of the Yale Invitational. The following weekend, Mizzou will play in the Rice Invitational in Houston against North Carolina State, host school Rice and Houston Baptist.
Mizzou then returns home for its final nonconference tournament as it hosts the Mizzou Classic from Sept. 20-21 at the Hearnes Center. Samford, Towson, SEMO and Middle Tennessee State are on the docket as Mizzou's competition for that weekend. Following the Mizzou Classic, South Carolina will come to the Hearnes Center for a 6:30 p.m. tilt on Sept. 27 for the Tigers' SEC opener.
Dates at Arkansas (Oct. 2) and at home against Auburn (Oct. 4) are on the schedule before Mizzou goes out of conference one more time for a home match with Austin Peay on Oct. 8 at 6:30 p.m. The Tigers will then resume SEC play with three consecutive home matches against Alabama (Oct. 13), Georgia (Oct. 18) and Florida (Oct. 20).
A weekend on the road comes next for the Tigers as they will head to LSU on Oct. 25 and then Texas A&M on Oct. 27 before returning home for a weekend with dates against Ole Miss (Nov. 1) and Kentucky (Nov. 3). The Tigers will then spend two weeks on the road at Auburn and Alabama (Nov. 8, Nov. 10) and at Florida and South Carolina (Nov. 15, Nov. 17).
Mizzou will then have a home-and-away weekend with Mississippi State (Nov. 22) at home before travelling to Kentucky on Nov. 24. The regular season finale will be against Arkansas on Nov. 27 at the Hearnes Center at 6:30 p.m. Of course, the Tiger senior class of Kreklow and Henning will be honored at that match.
