Boys volleyball hopes to become an official high school sport in Minnesota

Did you know that only half the states in the US recognize boys volleyball as an official high school sport? Well, there’s a push to add Minnesota to the list of states who do. A proposal to sanction boys volleyball will go up for a vote at the Minnesota State High School League's Representative Assembly on May 10. It’s the third proposal since 2019 and second time the assembly will take up the vote. Jenny Kilkelly is Director and President of the Minnesota Boys High school Volleyball Association, which is leading the fight for boys volleyball to be recognized. She joined host Cathy Wurzer to talk more about the vote.
