ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio University volleyball team will kick off the 2013 season with its annual Green & White Game (free admission) on Sunday at 2 p.m. inside the Convocation Center.
The scrimmage is part of a full day of volleyball on the Ohio University campus. The event begins with the team's Little Bobcats instructional program, which will be held from noon-1:30 p.m. at the Convo. A pizza party will be held after the session.
Little Bobcats is an outreach program designed to allow Ohio fans from grades 1-8 a chance to interact with their favorite Bobcat players, while also learning more about the sport and enhancing their volleyball skills.

After the clinic, Ohio fans can catch their first glimpse of the 2013 Bobcats during the Green & White game.
Following the game, the volleyball program will hold its annual cookout at the Richland Avenue Park area near the Ohio University Inn.
The Bobcats return five starters and nine letter winners from the 2012 squad that captured the MAC regular season title. Ohio will welcome back three First Team All-MAC selections from a year ago, including 2012 MAC Player of the Year Kelly Lamberti (Cary, Ill.), 2012 MAC Co-Freshman of the Year Meredith Ashy (Louisville, K.Y.) and junior outside hitter Chelsea Bilger (Fishers, Ind.).
