LWC Volleyball opens 2022 campaign in Bowling Green

With another offseason successfully in the books, the Lindsey Wilson volleyball team will, at last, kick off the 2022-23 Blue Raiders' athletics season with its third-ever appearance in the Vette City Volleyball Classic in Bowling Green.

Lindsey Wilson's first match of 2022 will come against the Crusaders of William Carey on Friday morning at 11:30amCT, trailed afterward by a mid-day battle with Blue Mountain at 4:30pmCT.

The two-day tournament at Emphram White Gym, 885 Mt Olivet Rd, Bowling Green, KY, will feature 18 different programs representing six different athletic conferences, including five schools from the Mid-South, and two Blue Raider opponents from both the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) and the Appalachian Athletics Conference (AAC).

One of those foes, Point University (GA) of the AAC, should look somewhat familiar to Lindsey Wilson, as the two sides previously met in the 2019 classic, in which the Blue Raiders narrowly out-killed the Skyhawks 37-35 en route to a three-set sweep.

The locals and Point will face off early Saturday afternoon at 2pmCT, followed by the Raiders' first-ever meeting with Tennessee Wesleyan University at 7pmCT.

On Friday, Lindsey Wilson matches up against two more first-time opponents in William Carey University and Blue Mountain College, both of the SSAC. The latter of the two schools is fresh off a Southern States tournament championship in 2021 and is projected to finish third in the conference's regular season standings this season. William Carey, on the other hand, was tabbed with fifth place in the SSAC preseason poll and will be without defending conference Setter of the Year Gillian Tripp.

Tickets for the 2022 Vette City Classic can be purchased on the Mid-South Conference's website. Both days of action begin at 9amCT, with matches taking place across four active courts.

Live stats will be available for the entirety of the tournament.
