Biographical / Historical

A group of RIT faculty and administrative personnel began playing volleyball during their lunch hour in 1970, and on most weekdays for about 20 years. They became known as the "Red Dogs." They also played matches against other teams on and off campus. Gradually, team members came and went, but the friendships formed on the court continued long after.
