Witt volleyball in NCAAs for 18th straight year


The Wittenberg University volleyball team will compete in the NCAA Division III Tournament for the 18th straight season and 19th time in school history.

The Tigers, who are ranked 12th in the nation, will open the tournament Thursday at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., where they will meet Bluffton. The match against Bluffton is one of four first-round matches scheduled for the regional tournament. Winners advance to the semis on Friday. The regional championship match is slated for Saturday.

Bluffton (16-18) was the surprise winner of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. Wittenberg (23-8) won the North Coast Athletic Conference’s automatic berth after winning the NCAC regular season and tournament titles. The Tigers have won nine straight matches.

The Witt-Bluffton winner faces the Buffalo State/Chicago winner on Friday. The other half of the bracket features Calvin, PSU-Behrend, Mount Union and Carnegie-Mellon. Witt has faced Calvin in the regional finals the last two years, defeating the Knights in 2011 en route to a national championship and dropping a 3-2 decision in 2012.

The winner of the regional tournament advances to nationals Nov. 21-23 at Hope College in Holland, Mich.
