TIFFIN - The Heidelberg University volleyball team will travel to Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, for their opening-round match of the NCAA Division III Volleyball Tournament. The Student Princes will face McDaniel (21-7), who was automatic qualifier out of the Centennial Conference. That match will take place on Friday at 12:30 p.m.
The winner of the Heidelberg-McDaniel match will advance to play the winner of the Wittenberg-Bluffton match on Saturday.
This is the seventh trip to the NCAA Tournament in Heidelberg Volleyball history, with the previous six appearances coming in consecutive seasons (2007-2012). In their six appearances, the Student Princes have a 4-6 record in NCAA tournament action.
Heidelberg earned their bid to the NCAA Tournament after winning the OAC regular-season championship and advancing to the championship match of the conference tournament, where they defeated Ohio Northern in five sets.
T-shirts commemorating the Berg's OAC Championship will be on sale now through November 19th.
