IRVING, Texas – The University of Dallas volleyball team will host the UD Tournament on September 15-16 at the Maher Center. Seven matches are on the docket with five teams competing.
Visiting will be Brooklyn College, Endicott College, Johnson & Wales University, and LeTourneau University. The Crusaders will play three of these squads, with matchups versus Brooklyn and Endicott being the first ever meetings between the programs. UD is 3-0 overall against Johnson & Wales, who will be affiliated members of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) in 2018-19. Dallas will not play LeTourneau, but the teams will have played each other once in other tournaments the first two weekends prior.
The complete schedule with approximate matchup times can be found here. That Friday will feature four matches, with a trio slated to complete the busy two-day span on Saturday. Livestats (links available closer to date), and video on College TV Ticket will be provided for all contests.
First-year head coach Kelli Trautmann's team will be playing the ninth match of the season, but will be in front of the home crowd for the first time on the 15th. The #SCAC8-8 tour will be stopping by on that date. Crusader fans, be sure to make it out to the Maher Center that evening at 6 p.m. to watch UD take on Brooklyn in the home opener.
