Gamecocks to Host the OVC Volleyball Tournament

The Jacksonville State University volleyball team clinched the Ohio Valley Conference regular season title over the weekend as they swept the UT-Martin Skyhawks and the Murray State Racers. Winning the title gave the Gamecocks the right to host the tournament Nov. 16-18 and they will have a first round bye.

The 2006 O'Reilly Auto Parts Volleyball Tournament will take place Nov. 16-18 at JSU. The games will be played at 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and the championship game will be played at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Because of JSU's first-round bye, they will not play until Nov. 17th.

The Gamecocks, the 2006 OVC regular season champions, move on to host the O’Reilly OVC Volleyball Tournament as the top seed. The six-team tournament will stretch from Thursday to Saturday, with the Gamecocks’ first match coming on Friday evening at 6 p.m. All matches will be held at Pete Mathews Coliseum.
