Central Arkansas considers adding women's beach volleyball

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - University of Central Arkansas trustees are set to consider adding women's beach volleyball as a sport.

The Log Cabin Democrat (http://bit.ly/1VHKQi7) reports the board of trustees will vote on whether to offer the sport beginning with the 2016-17 school year at a Friday morning meeting.

The board's meeting agenda says the school's athletic department studied the feasibility of adding beach volleyball, and that it's among the fastest growing NCAA sports.

UCA student arrested after anonymous threat

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- A University of Central Arkansas freshman was arrested Monday after posting a threat to an anonymous message board saying something would happen on campus Wednesday.

It happened Friday when university police came across a post that read, "Fellow Yaks, you all seem like good people and I care for you, so if you read this, please stay in your dorms or off campus next Wednesday, I care too much for you all to fall victim of the event."

Following a school shooting at an Oregon community college last week, many are taking caution even though school police say it's an empty threat.

"Oh yeah I've considered going up there and staying with her," said Candle Weaver, whose daughter is a freshman at the school. "I would like for her to stay home tomorrow and Wednesday and Thursday. I just wished they would cancel her classes with a threat like this."
