In addition to where some of our student/athletes have continued their education, Universities such as Ohio State University, Kansas State University, University of Missouri, University of Iowa, Iowa State University and Oregon State University have offered scholarships to our players. And programs such as Colorado State, BYU-Hawaii, University of Alabama, St. John's University and Florida State University have recruited players over the past few seasons. One of the many positives of Missouri State University-West Plains is that our student/athletes have options they may not have had coming out of high school. We are very proud of what we have accomplished in the 19 years of the Grizzly Volleyball program.
