Arizona adds sand volleyball as Division I sport



Arizona is adding sand volleyball to its repertoire of Division I varsity sports, athletic director Greg Byrne announced.

It will be the 20th Division I program at the UA, and Byrne has tabbed indoor volleyball associate head coach Steve Walker as the new program’s first head coach.

”This is an exciting day for the University of Arizona and our volleyball program,” said Byrne in a press release. “With our strengths as an athletics department – including strong indoor volleyball, great interest from our fans and weather that is very conducive to outdoor activity – it’s a natural fit for us.”
