The Norfolk State University athletics department will host a free Fan Fest Saturday, Aug. 20, featuring intrasquad scrimmages for both the Spartan volleyball and football teams. The Spartan women’s volleyball team, under first-year head coach Dave Albaugh, will host its Green vs. Gold game at 4 p.m. on Aug. 20 in Echols Hall. The match will be the Spartans’ final tune-up before opening the season on Aug. 26 in the Virginia Tech/Radford Invitational.
Also on Aug. 20, head football coach Latrell Scott and his Spartans will play their second intrasquad scrimmage of preseason training camp beginning at 6 p.m. at Dick Price Stadium. The scrimmage will be the penultimate preseason tune-up for the Spartans, who kick off the season on Sept. 3 against Elizabeth City State in the ABNB Labor Day Classic.
In addition to the volleyball and football games, fans can also meet and greet the teams after their scrimmages and pick up promotional materials for the two teams. There will be face painting and games for youth in attendance, and parents can also sign their children up for the Spartan Youth Club.
