AURORA, N.Y. – With the assistance of "Express Nation", the Wells College men's volleyball team will attempt to set the "Bump World Record" at the end of the second set against Cazenovia College on Friday, Feb. 22 during the Wells College Invitational, Head Coach Richard Gary announced early Thursday afternoon.
After the end of the second set against Cazenovia in the 8:00 p.m. contest on Friday, fans and players will be invited onto the court to "bump" a volleyball into the air as many times as possible for one minute – the world record attempt will be videotaped and submitted to RecordSetter.com for inclusion as an official world record.
With no group officially holding the record for most "bumps" at one time and one location, the Express look to hold the world's first bump record with a goal of 2,013 bumps set for all participants. Donations and pledges of any amount will be accepted by Coach Gary (email@example.com) or by individual members of both the men's and women's volleyball programs. "Per bump" pledges are encouraged to help encourage the most bumps during the event.
For more information, please contact Coach Gary at (315) 364-3350 or via the e-mail address listed above.
