WATERTOWN, Wis. -- The 2017 Sabercats Women's Volleyball Schedule has been released, and the back-to-back NCCAA DII National Champions will look to complete the trifecta this year on the national stage. Five home matches and the NCCAA DII North Regional Tournament will all be played on the campus of Maranatha Baptist University.
This season marks the first time since the 2011-12 season that the Sabercats host the NCCAA Regional Tournament. In 2011, the Sabercats won the regional title with a 3-1 defeat of Lincoln Christian University to secure a place at the NCCAA DII National Tournament.
Joining the NCCAA DII North Region this year is Emmaus Bible College (Dubuque, Iowa). The last time the Sabercats met the Eagles, MBU took home a 3-0 win on October 11, 2013. While the two teams are not slated to meet during the regular season, Sabercats have the potential to clash with the Eagles again during the Regional Tournament.
Last year, MBU went a perfect 4-0 against opposition from the NCCAA North Region.
