BC VOLLEYBALL SEEDED EIGHTH AT THE 2008 FOOD LION SAC VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT

Tornados first ever trip to the SAC Championship Tournament.

ROCK HILL, S.C.- The pairings for the 2008 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Volleyball Tournament have been announced and Brevard College will be the No. 8 seed and open against the No. 1 seeded Wingate University Bulldogs. That quarterfinal match will be played this Thursday, November 13 at 2:30 p.m. at Stanford Arena on the campus of Mars Hill College, the host site of this year’s tournament.

The winner of that match will advance to Friday’s semifinal against the winner of the Tusculum College/Newberry College match at 1 p.m. The SAC Tournament championship will be held on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. from Stanford Arena.  The winner receives an automatic berth to the NCAA Division II Tournament.

The championship match will be webstreamed and available to watch over the Internet.

Brevard, who will wrap up their season on Tuesday night in a non-conference match at home against North Greenville University, are currently 13-16 overall and finished their SAC regular season with a 3-13 record.

BC made history in their final SAC match last Wednesday night, as the Tornados stormed back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Tusculum College Pioneers and earn their spot in their first ever SAC Volleyball Tournament.

The Tornados were swept by the Wingate Bulldogs in their two match-ups this season, as was the entire South Atlantic Conference, as Wingate went an undefeated 16-0 in conference play this season and posted an overall record of 27-1.

Brevard will wrap up their 2008 regular season on Tuesday night, November 11, when the Tornados will host North Greenville University.  Brevard will honor its lone senior – captain and setter Jami Perry at the conclusion of the match.
