2017 Beach Volleyball Schedule Announced
CONWAY - Coastal Carolina head beach volleyball coach Justin Stack announced Tuesday the team's 2017 spring schedule. The Chanticleers are slated to play 15 regular season matches, including the first four home matches in program history.
The 2017 season is Coastal's second year as a beach volleyball program, and the second year it will compete as an affiliate member of the ASUN Conference.
Coastal opens its season at South Carolina on March 14, and won't return to action until March 29 when it travels to Mercer for a doubleheader.
From April 1-2 the Chants will play four matches at UNC Wilmington. Coastal opens the weekend against South Carolina and Stevenson on Saturday, and finishes against Mercer and College of Charleston on Sunday.
The Chants then travel to DeLand, Fla., for four matches against fellow ASUN opponents Florida Gulf Coast and Stetson. Coastal plays the Eagles and Hatters twice each on April 7 and 8.
Coastal's first-ever home matches will take place April 14-15 at the Coastal Carolina Beach Volleyball Courts, which are currently under construction and are expected to be completed in March. The new facility will feature five sand courts. North Florida and Jacksonville will be in town to play a pair of matches against Coastal.
The 2017 ASUN Beach Volleyball Championship will take place April 22-23 in DeLand, Fla., and is hosted by Stetson. North Florida is the defending ASUN champion after knocking off top-seeded Stetson in the 2016 championship, 3-2.
