U of L Volleyball set for NCAA opener at Cardinal Arena Friday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Louisville Cardinals volleyball team put their ACC championship trophy on display Tuesday.

U of L is set to open the post-season at home Friday at the Cardinal Arena. 

We're hosting three really, really strong teams," head coach Anne Kordes said. "The winner of the Ohio Valley, Belmont, is who we play Friday at Cardinal Arena."

If the team wins, they will play the winner of Illinois University and Southern Illinois. 

"We're excited to be able to host in our home town," Kordes said.

"We didn't know where we were going to fall, we didn't know if we were gonna get shipped out or if we were gonna get to stay" senior setter Katie George said. "But [coach] said a couple weeks ago she thought her feeling was good about it."

The 15th seeded Cardinals have won eight of their last nine matches coming into Friday's NCAA opener.

"I'm just happy we're hosting honestly, but I think there would be a home court advantage," senior outside hitter Erin Fairs said.
