The Park University women’s volleyball team is sitting on the cusp of history, and you have a chance to see it in person. Check out the invitation from Steve Wilson below.
On October 24, Missouri Baptist University put 859 fans inside the Carl and Deloris Petty Sports and Recreation Complex, and let me confirm for you that it was loud. Really loud. I couldn’t hear my fingers hitting the keyboard when trying to compose a Tweet from press row. So loud that the seventh-ranked Spartans (now No. 6) nearly upset your second-ranked Pirates. But Park got by that obstacle, forcing the 2014 American Midwest Conference Championship to run through Breckon Sports Center in 2014.
Saturday, at 1 p.m., it’s your turn. It’s your turn to be respectfully rowdy and show MBU who resides in Breckon Sports Center. In short, we need you. Whether you’re student, staff or faculty, we need you to cheer YOUR University to victory in what will undoubtedly be one of the season’s toughest matches. We need you tell your friends, and we need you to bring your friends. Missouri Baptist is 34-2, and other than Park, the Spartans’ only loss is to NCAA Division II Quincy… a match they wish they had back. They get a chance at redemption Saturday against our team, trying to follow in the footsteps of Duke University, which beat previously undefeated Florida State last night, and the Colorado Buffaloes, who last night knocked Washington out of the ranks of the unbeaten. Your University is one of two undefeated teams left in collegiate volleyball (the other is Stanford…) and Park owns the nation’s best active winning streak (at all levels) with 34-consecutive wins with a 99-2 record in 101 sets. Don’t let it end tomorrow. Your Pirates are a good great team, but even great teams need help from friends and family.
Let’s pack Breckon Sports Center with the Park University Family, the loudest, most energetic fans in the American Midwest Conference, when Missouri Baptist visits tomorrow at 1 p.m. Now, more than ever, it’s time to #ProtectTheBreck.

*If you’re not able to attend tomorrow’s match, we’ll miss you, but you can still be there in spirit. You can watch the game on the Pirate Sports Network, which will also feature live stats. If you’re following on your phone, you can still watch the match (the PSN is fully compatible with both Android and Apple smart phones and tablets). But if you’re just following the score, your best bet is to watch the Breckon Sports Center Stat Monitor for score updates and follow us on Twitter (@ParkPirates) during the match.
