Bucs ready for A-Sun Volleyball Tournament match against Jacksonville

Thursday, November 15, 2007

MACON, Ga. (Nov 15, 2007) - The ETSU volleyball team is set to take on Jacksonville in the semifinals of the Atlantic Sun Tournament on Friday at 5 p.m. in the University Center on the Mercer campus.

 

The Bucs, 19-12 overall and 9-2 in conference play, are currently on a five game win streak. ETSU will be looking to avenge their loss from last year as the Dolphins spoiled the Bucs' tournament in 2006 knocking them out in the semifinals. The Bucs defeated Jacksonville earlier this year in Brooks Gym, 3-2.

 

Jacksonville has won four of their last five games coming into the match including wins over North Florida and Gardner-Webb. The Dolphins feature Melissa Merchant who was named First Team All-Conference, and is ranked 12th in the nation in digs.

The winner of the ETSU vs. Jacksonville match will meet the winner of the Belmont vs. Mercer/Lipscomb match Saturday at 1 p.m. in the A-Sun Tournament Championship.
