Racer ArenaMurray State Volleyball has played in Racer Arena since 1998. It is the nation's second-largest volleyball-only facility among NCAA Division I schools. In 2009, a new wooden floor was installed to replace the SportCourt. The floor was later custom painted with the new Murray State logo and volleyball specific details.
Head coach David Schwepker enters his 20th season at Murray State and his 22nd season overall as a collegiate head coach, having begun his coaching career at Tennessee State.
He has the longest tenure of any active volleyball coach in the Ohio Valley Conference at his school, equaled only by Eastern Kentucky’s Lori Duncan. In 2007 he became the first Racer volleyball coach and the 19th coach to serve 10 or more seasons with the Navy and Gold.
Schwepker is the winningest coach in Racer volleyball history, surpassing Brenda Bowlin with the last win of the 2004 season, with a 3-1 win over his former charge, Tennessee State (Nov. 9). He also became the first Racer coach to garner 100 wins, reaching that milestone with a 3-1 win over Idaho State (Sep. 1, 2006).
