HAMMOND, La. – The upcoming Southeastern Showdown, set to be hosted by the Southeastern Louisiana University volleyball program at the University Center this weekend, has been canceled as the university and local community begin the recovery process after sustaining a direct hit from Hurricane Ida.

The four-team event was slated to include Auburn (2-0), Cal State Fullerton (1-1) and Southern (0-3).

Following its opening weekend participation in the StarkVegas Classic, the SLU volleyball team (0-2) chose to remain in Starkville, Mississippi out of the direct path of the storm.

Southeastern is currently slated to return to action, Sept. 7, against Jackson State in Jackson, Mississippi.

Fans interested in becoming active supporters of the Southeastern volleyball program are encouraged to join the Diggin’ It Club. Lion volleyball alums are encouraged to join the exclusive S Club, which is restricted to Southeastern athletic letter winners.

All membership fees and donations to both the Diggin’ It Club and S Club (volleyball) are available for the exclusive use of the Southeastern volleyball program. Membership information is available by contacting the Lion Athletics Association at or (985) 549-5091 or visiting
