Edward Waters to add men’s volleyball as college sport
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Edward Waters is adding men’s volleyball to its college athletics program, the school announced on Friday. The school received a $100,000 grant from the First Point Volleyball Foundation and USA Volleyball to help get the sport off the ground. Those organizations helped six Historically Black Colleges and Universities launch men’s volleyball last year with a $1 million grant. EWC is the first HBCU in Florida to add men’s volleyball. Pending a successful transition this year, EWC will be positioned to qualify for and compete in the SIAC Championships.
