The first San Jose State University sand volleyball team makes its NCAA debut at the University of the Pacific (UOP), Saturday, March 8. The Spartans have matches with host UOP at 9:00 a.m. and Santa Clara at noon. Both matches will take place at the Klein Family Field.
Aaron Shepardson, who played on the 2000 and 2001 USA National men's volleyball team, is San Jose State's sand volleyball head coach. Shepardson started the sand volleyball program at CSU Bakersfield in 2013 and led the Roadrunners to a 5-7 win-loss record in spite of playing a schedule that included six teams ranked in the top-five nationally.
