Coach Shondell's message to Purdue students, and even some fans

This is more directed towards Purdue students, especially those in the Block Party to claim their tickets for the games this weekend. But I figured I would share it with the rest of the Purdue community to get you guys pumped up to come to the big games this weekend in Mackey Arena and cheer on your Boilermakers to victory!

Block Party - America's best student VB section,

This is it - the biggest volleyball event ever on the Purdue campus - an opportunity to beat two top-notch opponents on Keady Court and advance to the Final Four for the first time .....ever! We need the power of the Block Party. We need the Block Party to take your skills to a new level in Mackey. We have free tickets for every student who needs one. Bring a friend, bring your entire dorm with you. This is a weekend that Purdue Volleyball has been waiting for. #1 Penn State battles Kentucky of the SEC at 5 PM. The Boilers slug it out with #8 Minnesota in match #2 at 7 PM. On Saturday, the winners meet for a trip to the Final Four at 4 PM! A ton of tickets have been sold - and they are literally selling like hot-cakes. We don't just need you to be there - we need you in epic form.

This past weekend, your Boilers were incredible. The team defeated two conference champions in two days - beating Colorado State (a team who has been to the last 18 NCAA Tournaments) and #9 Florida State in their own snake pit - in which the Seminoles has won 27 consecutive matches - until the Boilers busted their chops on Saturday night. Your team played with such determination, intensity, focus, and desire. Their win was motivated by the opportunity to return to Mackey and play in front of their fans - led by the Block Party. Spread the word beginning NOW - be at Mackey on Friday for the premier volleyball event in Purdue history. Oh, and come ready to rock like there is no tomorrow.

Again, we have the tickets - we just need you, your Boilermaker spirit, your passion, and your friends.

Boiler Up!
