Greencastle, Ind. - Following a 20-7 regular season and a second-place finish in the North Coast Athletic Conference, the DePauw volleyball team earned an at-large berth in the NCAA Division III Volleyball Championship. The Tigers open play against Ohio Northern (27-5) in a first-round match on Friday, November 10, at 5:30 p.m. at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.
"This morning was maybe the longest wait ever to find this out, and we are over the moon ecstatic," coach Deb Zellers said. "I think we have more volleyball left to play in us. We didn't end on the way we wanted to in our conference championship, so to have an opportunity to come back and play again and show everybody the type of team we have is truly an awesome opportunity."
The Tigers are making their seventh overall appearance in the Championship after advancing to the second round last year. DePauw has earned berths in the four of the last five tournaments.
