Tulane announces 2022 indoor volleyball schedule
New head coach Jordana Price to lead Green Wave
NEW ORLEANS – Fifteen home matches in the Avron B. Fogelman Arena in the Devlin Fieldhouse and two in-season tournaments highlight the 2022 Tulane University volleyball schedule, Green Wave head coach Jordana Price announced on Monday.
After opening the year at the Lamar Invitational on August 26 in Beaumont, Texas, the Green Wave will play host to Ohio University, Kansas City and Howard in the Tulane Invitational on September’s first weekend. Tulane will then travel to Santa Clara, California to take on Oklahoma and the host Broncos. Before opening American Athletic Conference action on September 21 with a home contest against Houston, Tulane will play host to Oregon State and LSU for the Green Wave Invitational on September 17.
Twenty (20) of Tulane’s regular season matches are against league opponents. In addition to the matchup against the Cougars, the Green Wave’s conference home slate includes Cincinnati (September 23), South Florida (October 7), UCF (October 9), Tulsa (October 21), Wichita State (October 23), East Carolina (October 28), Temple (October 30), SMU (November 18) and Memphis (November 20).
Tulane’s first conference road match is scheduled for September 30 at Temple. The rest of the Green Wave’s road league slate is as follows: East Carolina (October 2), Memphis (October 14), SMU (October 16), Houston (November 2), Cincinnati (November 6), Wichita State (November 11), Tulsa (November 13), UCF (November 23) and South Florida (November 25).
The winner of the American’s regular season title will receive the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, which is slated to begin on December 1 at sites yet to be announced. The NCAA Championship is scheduled for December 15 in Omaha, Nebraska.
“One of the things we wanted to highlight in our schedule was stability, proving we can be competitive from start to finish,” Price said. “We have worked hard to bring in new talent to bolster the current roster, which will provide us the offensive and defensive abilities needed to be successful in preseason play. We constructed the non-conference schedule in a way that will challenge us, while simultaneously creating opportunities for growth and success as we hit the ground running before our aggressive conference slate.”
The Green Wave returns six letterwinners from a year ago. This season, Tulane welcomes the talents of six incoming freshmen in Mackenzie Mahr, Katherine Crosley, Sabrina Skyers, AB-Annabelle He, Ava Derbes and Ceren Aki. The Green Wave will also feature four graduate transfers in Kayla Kaiser, Melissa Kolurbasi, Kate Van Houten and Amarachi Osuji.
