IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head volleyball coach Bond Shymansky will meet with the media Friday at 1:30 p.m. (CT) in the Media Room inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
The press conference will be available live from start to finish on Hawkeye All-Access, the multi-media portal inside hawkeyesports.com, the official worldwide website off the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Shymanksy has renewed excitement for the Iowa volleyball program in his first two years at the helm. Iowa gained national attention in 2015, winning eight straight matches from Sept. 6-19. The streak included back-to-back wins over Iowa State (3-1) — Iowa’s first win over the Cyclones since 1997 — and No. 25 Texas A&M (3-1).
In addition to live coverage of Shymansky’s news conference, subscribers to Hawkeye All-Access also gain exclusive access to the weekly media conferences with UI football coach Kirk Ferentz, UI basketball coaches Fran McCaffery and Lisa Bluder, postgame interviews following home events, weekly “Hawk Talk” radio shows, live play-by-play of UI athletic events and more.
Iowa hosts its annual Black & Gold Scrimmage on Saturday at 3 p.m. (CT) in the Carver-Hawkeye Arena practice gym. The Hawkeyes open the season Aug. 27-28 at the Northern Illinois Tournament in DeKalb, Illinois.
