Fresh off a Midwest Conference Tournament Championship win, the Beloit College volleyball team will play Washington University (St. Louis) in the Midwest Regional on Friday at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis. as they open their run in the NCAA Division III Volleyball Tournament.
The Buccaneers earned their bid after winning the Midwest Conference Championship with a 3-0 win over St. Norbert College in Monmouth, Ill., on Saturday afternoon.
The Bucs will take on Washington University’s Bears on Friday, Nov. 12 at 3 p.m. at Carthage College’s Tarble Arena. Live streaming volleyball action will be available through Carthage's website at http://athletics.carthage.edu/. The Saturday, Nov. 13, semifinals will be played at 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., with the Sunday, Nov. 14 regional title match at 4 p.m. The national quarterfinals, semifinals, and NCAA championship will take place at Washington University in St. Louis Nov. 19-21.
“I'm very excited that our team made it into the NCAA tournament,” said Head Coach Dawn Redd. “It marks the culmination of a whole lot of hard work and sweat equity by the wonderful ladies on my team. I'm excited to be able to say that I've got to plan another week of practice!”
The Bucs are making their second appearance in the NCAAs. The first came during the 2006 season, when they won both the MWC and MWC Tournament Championships. That year, they fell to Concordia-Moorhead in Eau Claire, Wis.
