Coming off back-to-back Final Four appearances and graduating six 2016 seniors, Minnesota remained one of the top programs in NCAA Division I and Big Ten standings during the 2017 campaign.
Laura Kasey is in her fourth year with the Gopher Volleyball program after joining the team in January 2015.
Kasey helped Minnesota to a 2015 Big Ten championship and back-to-back NCAA Final Four apprearances. Working primarily with the middle blockers, Kasey helped Hannah Tapp and Paige Tapp to All-America honors, while Hannah was named a First Team All-Big Ten selection in 2015.
Under Kasey's guidance, Minnesota had three middle blockers who garnered awards in 2016. Hannah Tapp was named an All-Big Ten selection and a Second Team AVCA All-American.
Marie Zidek was named head coach of the Blue Demon volleyball program at the end of last year. She was an assistant coach at the University of San Diego for the last four seasons where she helped the program to four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.
Zidek was named a 30 Under 30 Award winner by the AVCA and has served as a conference representative and publications director for assistant coaches in each of her previous stops in the BIG EAST, Mid-American Conference and West Coast Conference.
Since taking the helm of the program in 2001, Suzie Fritz has established K-State volleyball as not only a contender in the Big 12 but also the nation. A Kansas native and part of the program since 1997, Fritz is K-State’s winningest coach and has helped the program reach the NCAA Tournament 16 times, including 12 as the head coach.
Fritz has accumulated 326 career wins in 17 seasons and led the Wildcats to being nationally ranked in 11 different campaigns. She has a 170-142 (.545) record in Big 12 action, with the 170 wins ranking third among Big 12 teams since 2001. Fritz helped lead the Wildcats to their first and only Big 12 title in 2003 when the nationally ranked Cats were 18-2 in conference and 30-5 overall.
