The College of Charleston Volleyball Team Earns Their 3rd Straight NCAA Tournament Invitation

The College of Charleston Volleyball team (27-7) won their 3rd straight SoCon Title-with a 3-1 win over the 7th seeded UNC-Greensboro on the 19th of this month. They will represent the SoCon as the Cougs return to the NCAA Tournament to face Arizona State (15-14) in Gainesville, Florida at UofF. If the Cougs advance they will face the winner between Florida and Florida Atlantic.

CofC has an excellent chance to win at the NCAA Tournament. After beating the UNC Tarheels last year, the Cougars became the first SoCon team to win in the NCAA Tournament. They advanced to face Purdue, but the Boilermakers sent our ladies home with a close margin of victory. The College responded with a strong season this year, playing (closely) many big named programs, beating UNC once again and winning a 3rd straight SoCon Title (4th since 2002).
