Women's Volleyball releases fall schedule
May 24, 2010
The Bryan College Women's Volleyball 2010 schedule has been released. The defending regular-season co-champions hope to improve upon their 15-1 regular-season and conference tournament championship loss. Highlights of the upcoming season include the following:
The Lions will open the season on the road with a preseason match at Bethel College. The Bethel team finished with their best regular season in 2009 and a fourth place finish in the TranSouth Conference.
On August 27-28, the Lions will travel to Milligan College to compete in the Milligan Mountain Madness Tournament. In 2009, the Lions finished second behind Shorter College, the only team to defeat them in the competition. On the opening day, the Lions will face Southern Virginia University and Trevecca Nazarene, who finished the 2009 season as the TranSouth runners-up. Day Two will open with the Lions facing former AAC member UVA-Wise. The Lions will close their competition with a match against Shorter.
August 31 could have post-season NCCAA national ramifications as the Lions travel to Kentucky to face Campbellsville University in a rematch of the 2009 NCCAA National tournament Semi-final. The CU team won that match 3-1 on the way to their first National Championship.
The Lions then travel to Clearwater, FL, to renew their participation in the Clearwater Christian Labor Day Tourney. Defending NCAA Div. II National Champions Clearwater Christian will be a strong test for the Lions. The Lion team will also compete against NCCAA Div. II Lancaster Bible College, NAIA member Ave Maria University, and fellow AAC member Bluefield College.
AAC competition begins Sept. 11, and the Lions will host their first home match on the 14th against Reinhardt College. On Saturday, Sept. 18, the Lions will host fellow Co-Champion Union College and Shorter College for a tri-match. The weekend promises to be highly competitive, with AAC standings on the line and stiff competition from a tough Shorter team.
Homecoming Weekend should be highly competitive, as the Lions host the University of Mobile Friday, Oct. 1, in Summers Gymnasium. The Rams were the 2009 Regular Season/Tournament champions of the Gulf-South Conference and advanced to the NAIA National Championship Tournament.
The Lions will travel to Lindenwood University over Fall Break (Oct. 14-17) to compete in a high-powered tournament. Although matches have not been determined, the 2009 tournament featured five teams that advanced to the NAIA National Championships.
The Lions' Senior Weekend will include home Varsity and JV matches on Friday, Oct. 29, against Montreat. The Varsity will compete at 6:30 and JV at 8:30 so that seniors on the JV team can be recognized. Varsity seniors will be recognized Saturday, Oct. 30, when the Lions face Milligan College. The Lions will wrap up their regular season with a match at Shorter College.
The AAC Post-Season tournament will be held again at the Kingsport Marriott Hotel November 10-12.
