Tigers to Hold Orange & White Scrimmage, Free Cookout Saturday

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson volleyball team will hold its annual Orange & White scrimmage on Saturday, Aug. 19 at 1 PM in Jervey Gym. Following the scrimmage, all fans are invited to stay for an autograph session and get-to-know-the Tigers cookout, also in Jervey Gym. The entire event is free and open to the public. 

Saturday’s scrimmage will be the first opportunity for fans to see the 2017 Tigers and first-year head coach Michaela Franklin in action. The team returns 10 letterwinners from the 2016 squad, and has also added five freshmen and two transfers, to round out the 17-player roster. Setter Keely Hayes and libero Kennedy Wilson-Talmadge are the only two seniors on the squad, which features 12 underclassmen.

The Tigers start classes for the fall semester on Wednesday, Aug. 23, and open the 2017 regular season on Friday, Aug. 25 with the annual Big Orange Bash tournament. Clemson hosts Bethune-Cookman on Friday at 7 PM in Jervey Gym, and faces Jacksonville at 12:30 PM and Lamar at 7:30 PM on Saturday, Day 2 of the tournament.
