This Week in Beach Volleyball: FIU The Place to Be in College; Snow Volleyball!

Austria-beach volleyball-Joss Woodhead

This is certainly not your everyday ‘This Week in Beach Volleyball’ column because, uh, it’s not exactly beach volleyball. On Wednesday, a women’s team of Katie Spieler, Allie Wheeler, Emily Hartong and Karissa Cook will head off to Austria and Italy alongside men Eric Zaun, Travis Mewhirter, Chris Vaughan and Chase Frishman for a pair of snow volleyball events.

The college girls are not headed north for spring. They are, for the most part, headed south, to Florida International for a critical tournament for the East Region teams.

Here’s what to watch this week in beach volleyball.
