All any team ever needs at the end of a season is an opportunity. An opportunity to do something special, to go out with a win and perhaps even a championship. As it would happen, the MACU Lady Mustangs have just that, opportunity. Opportunity in the form of a bid to the USCAA Women's Volleyball Tournament and an opportunity to win a championship.
The Lady Mustangs will be making their first appearance on the National Tournament stage and have been given the 3rd seed. The four team tournament will be a round robin style pool play with the pool runner up taking on the pool play winner for the championship. Heading into the tournament the Lady Mustangs are led by a trio of seniors in Mallary Brogden, Brealle White and Gabrielle Howlett while sophomores Emely Rios and Judea Edmonds have been a reliable presence on the court for the team all year.
MACU kicks off pool play on Thursday November 7th taking on the number 4 seeded Bluefield State College followed by a match with the 2nd seeded University of Maine Fort Kent(13-10). Friday the Lady Mustangs return to the court to face off against the defending champions from Florida National University(12-11).
