Colonel volleyball unveils 2017 slate
Head Coach Tommy Harold released the Nicholls State University volleyball program’s 2017 schedule June 27, highlighted by four non-conference tournaments, nine home matches and an alumni scrimmage.
“Our schedule lines up nicely this year,” Harold said in a news release. “We will see a mix of different styles of play that should serve us well as we prepare for play in the Southland. There are some very challenging matches on the schedule that should push us to improve. I think the team will embrace these challenges and process of improving daily.”
The Colonels will participate in two-day tournaments at Southern Miss (Aug. 25-26), UL-Lafayette (Sept. 1-2), Tulane (Sept. 8-9) and Memphis (Sept. 15-16) before commencing Southland Conference play at McNeese Sept. 19.
The Colonels’ home opener is Sept. 12 against Mississippi Valley State at 6:30 p.m.
Harold and his squad have 16 Southland Conference contests lined up, eight at home and eight on the road.
The 2017 Southland Conference Tournament will be held at the Dugan Wellness Center on the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi campus. The three-day event, beginning Nov. 17, will
host the top-eight Southland Conference teams based on regular-season conference winning percentage.
The match featuring the 2017 team and Nicholls volleyball alumnae will take place Aug. 19 at 1 p.m. inside Stopher Gym.
Berwick High alum Brie Hill is a member of the Nicholls State volleyball team.
