Costumes, contests featured Friday as Tech hosts Volleyween in Eblen Center

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Fans are invited to come in costume and participate in the contests that are scheduled when Tennessee Tech hosts "Volleyween" Friday night in Eblen Center as the Golden Eagle volleyball team hosts a first-place showdown with Morehead State.

The match begins at 7 p.m. and admission is free.

Tech, which is tied for first in the league with a 10-2 conference record, hosts a crucial OVC weekend pair of matches. After facing Morehead State Friday night, the Golden Eagles play their final regular season home contest Saturday at 2 p.m. against Eastern Kentucky. That match is Senior Day, and Tech will recognize seniors Kappy Lang, Caitlin Bullock and Jessica Asplund.

Volleyween will feature a costume contest, c0-hosted by Tech and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, plus other events such as Halloween trivia, a Mummy wrapping contest, and a dance contest to the tune of Michael Jackson's "Thriller."

The match, as well as all of the festivities, will also be streamed live on the Internet on OVCsports.TV.

At the end of Friday's match, the Golden Eagle players will go into the stands to pass out treats.
