Volleyball Conference Schedule Announced

Volleyball Conference Schedule Announced

The Valpo volleyball program is set to play 18 Missouri Valley Conference matches during the spring semester starting in early February, as the conference announced a revamped schedule this week.

With this year’s scheduling format, teams will play back-to-back dates against the same team at the same location. The format retains the full double round-robin schedule, but necessitates travel to only five of the other nine conference schools.

Valpo’s 2020-21 MVC schedule opens up Feb. 7-8 at Missouri State, with the home openers set for Feb. 14-15 against Southern Illinois. Valpo will also host Bradley, UNI and Indiana State, while traveling to Illinois State, Drake and Evansville – the latter closing the regular season March 27-28.

Valpo will take on travel partner Loyola in one match at the ARC and one match in Chicago at dates to be determined. Any non-conference matches will be announced at a future date as well. The MVC Tournament is scheduled for April 1-3 at Illinois State, with eight teams qualifying for the event.
