Nationals Field Adjusted

Nationals Field Adjusted

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The field for the 2020 NCCAA DII Women's Volleyball National Tournament has been adjusted, and the Sabercats will now face Pensacola Christian to open the 2020 tournament.

Manhattan Christian, the #6 seed, has withdrawn from the tournament, making way for a new team to enter. This will be the first time Pensacola has featured at the Women's Volleyball DII National Tournament.

With the change, Toccoa Falls becomes the #7 seed, moving them into Pool B.


The tournament holds two pools of four teams that play a round-robin format, and the top two teams from each pool will advance to the national semifinals.

Here is an overview of the adjusted field:

Pool A   Qualifying Method   Location                    Record      Power Rating    2019 Finish
#1 Maranatha        North Champion  Watertown, Wis. 18-3  4.421 Runner-up

  • 11/19/2020 at 9:30 a.m. vs #5 Randall

  • 11/20/2020 at 5:00 p.m. - NCCAA National Championship


The winners of each pool will face the runner-up of the other pool for the national semifinals and a chance to advance to the National Championship.

The seedings are determined based on the new NCCAA Power Rating System, which ranks teams based on win/loss record and strength of schedule. The Sabercats have earned the #1 seed after going 16-3 during the regular season, 18-3 overall, and a perfect 18-0 in NCCAA competition in 2020.
