Exhibit Featuring Regional Volleyball Opens at Minnetrista

MUNCIE Minnetrista is pleased to announce the opening of Dig Set Spike June 18. This exciting exhibit chronicles the regional history of volleyball. In the nation, there are three cities known to produce world-class female volleyball players and extraordinary volleyball coaches for women’s teams: Los Angeles, Chicago, and Muncie.

Dig Set Spike celebrates the sport, the players, the coaches, and the history of volleyball in East Central Indiana. In this exhibit, visitors will explore volleyball in fresh and interactive ways as they meet young players and find out how volleyball has changed their lives. Visitors will discover the role this region of Indiana has played in the development of the great American sport of volleyball.

Dig Set Spike explores volley from its earliest beginnings in 1895 when it was called Mintonette all the way to the present day. Visitors will be introduced to six young women who currently play volleyball. They will share their knowledge of the game and how volleyball has influenced their lives off the court. Through a truly amazing interactive video experience, visitors will also get to meet Don and Steve Shondell!

Minnetrista has assembled a crack of team players to challenge other teams in the community. If you think your team can take us on call 282-4848 to schedule a game. Don Shondell will be coaching Team Minnetrista to victory.

Located along historic White River, Minnetrista includes 40 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds, a modern museum facility, an historic home, Nature Area, numerous sculptures, and a portion of the White River Greenway. Minnetrista serves East Central Indiana with dynamic community activities and exhibits that honor and reflect its natural and cultural heritage.
