Women’s Volleyball Releases 2016 Schedule

Illinois Institute of Technology’s Women’s Volleyball team has released its 2016 schedule. It features 11 home matches and a two-day Scarlet Hawk invite at the Keating Sports Center on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1.

“Our schedule presents a lot of exciting and challenging match-ups,” said Head Coach Katie Zulandt. “We have a young team coming in the fall that will play some tough competition early on in the season. My hope is that we will learn how to grind through tough matches so that we are stronger and more resilient as the season progresses.”

The season begins with eight straight matches away from home. Illinois Tech will open the year with four matches at Beloit College’s Buc Blast Tourney on Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3, an event where the Scarlet Hawks went 4-0 last season. The Scarlet Hawks will oppose North Central (Minn.), Blackburn, Beloit, and UW-Marathon County over the two days.

The 2016 home schedule opens with a match against Moody Bible on Friday, September 16 at 7 p.m. in the Keating Sports Center. Just 16 hours later, the Scarlet Hawks will host Rockford University and St. Mary’s (Ind.) in a Homecoming tri-match.

Live stats will be provided for all home matches, while live audio and video will be available for most home matches. All live audio broadcasts will be powered by Illinois Media School. Illinois Tech Women’s Volleyball finished with a 13-19 record in 2015.
