Volleyball: LWC to travel to Kansas for NAIA opener
By Kyle Jackson
The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team received their opening-round assignment for the NAIA National Championship on Monday and are set to travel to Ottawa (KS), officials at the national office announced.
The 48-team event will get underway with 24 National Championship Opening Round matches at campus locations on November 20. The start time for the Blue Raiders match with the Braves will be released later this week with a full match preview on www.lindseyathletics.com.
Lindsey Wilson received an automatic qualifying bid after claiming the Mid-South Conference tournament crown on Saturday for the seventh season in a row and ninth time in program history.
The Blue Raiders are making their 11th NAIA National Tournament appearance and hold a 28-14 overall record at the national tournament with two appearances in the fab four and one NAIA National Championship during the 2017 campaign. LWC is 3-1 all-time in opening round action.
After opening rounds, the action inside the Tyson Events Center starts with two days of pool play from November 30 to December 1. The top team in each pool will advance to the elimination bracket on December 2, the semifinals will be played on December 3 and the national champion crowned on December 4.
This year's field includes 36 automatic qualifiers and 12 at-large selections. The automatic berths are determined by regular-season champions or runner-ups, conference tournament title winners or runner-ups, or by conference selection. The remaining at-large bids were determined by the selection committee. Final site pools will be determined on Sunday, November 21, and released by 5pmCT.
