Mizzou Volleyball Fans Top Attendance

1 decade 2 years 7 months ago Monday, November 28 2005 Nov 28, 2005 Monday, November 28, 2005 3:22:23 PM CST November 28, 2005 in Tiger Talk

The team ranks eighth in the nation with more than 2,000 fans per match.

"It was so exciting to see a successful Mizzou team since," said volleyball fan Mark Hirsch.

The Tigers are ranked in the top 10 in the nation, and own sweeps against three other top ten teams this season.

"The girls on these teams, they care so much," said fan Aaron Marks. "They dive for every single ball and even if the balls past them, they'll still dive for it. They show so much effort.  It's just so much fun to watch them play."

Mizzou volleyball is breaking attendance records this season, averaging more than 2500 per contest.  A record 7,000 showed up to watch the match against Nebraska

"Well, they can cheer, and they're loud. I'm telling you that really helps a lot and I've seen those people just kinda jump start the crowd," said coach Wayne Kreklow. 

"Once in a while when I'm heading back to serve I'll see them dancing around and jumping around," said outside hitter Jessica Vander Kooi. "They just look like they're having a lot of fun and good support for us."

The head coach fan club, or "Kreklow Krazies" also go by "K-squared."  This is not only a slogan but they' also have a logo.

"We also found out he played some games with the Boston Celtics so that's why we put the logo on the back with his face and a volleyball instead of a basketball," said Marks.

Some fans think this team can make a run in the national tournament.

"I don't see any reason why they can't at least compete for it," said Marks.  "They might not win it, but they're one of the teams that at the end could be there."

"I think they can do it," said Hirsch.  "Kreklow gets his whole team together. They can do it. They have the talent."

When this season is done the Krazies want to see the tradition continue.

"I sure hope so," said Hirsch.  "I'm going to graduate, but we can always order more shirts."

The Kreklow Krazies gave Wayne a t-shirt when they founded the group, but Wayne says he has not found the perfect opportunity to wear it yet.
