Teams Will Vie for Conference Title and NCAA berth

FRISCO, Texas – The Southland Conference has revealed its volleyball conference regular season for the spring semester. All 13 teams are planning a full round-robin schedule, followed by a league tournament and an automatic berth in the revised NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship.

The modified conference regular-season schedule of 12 matches will begin Feb. 2, and continues through March 27, with a four-team, single-elimination championship at the site of the top seed April 2-3. Teams may also have opportunities to schedule non-conference competition beginning as early as Jan. 23.

“Again, we are very pleased to announce another fall sports plan for the spring semester, as our volleyball programs will get championship opportunities,” Southland Commissioner Tom Burnett said. “While different in many regards, we look forward to a very competitive spring season with championships at the conference and NCAA levels.”

On Aug. 12, Southland presidents approved the postponement of fall conference sports competition, with the intent to explore conference schedules in the spring semester, and later signed off on an opt-out opportunity for programs focused on fall-only participation. A spring schedule for football and soccer teams were released earlier.

Like all Southland sports, the volleyball schedule will be contingent upon current health conditions in each university community, following the guidance from the NCAA and local medical authorities. Game management details, ticketing and attendance matters, media and broadcast issues, and other operational details will be determined by the Southland and the host institutions.
