The RVC volleyball team will look to advance to the NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) national tournament for the third straight season as regional play continues Saturday, October 27 at Rock Valley College.
RVC is the host site for this year's NJCAA Region IV District B tournament and comes in as the #1 seed after compiling a record of 10-2 in conference play and 35-8 overall. As the #1 seed, RVC earned a first round bye and will take on #4 Joliet, which defeated Triton on Wednesday night. The teams will play the first semi-final match at 10:00 a.m. Saturday in the Physical Education Center (PEC) gym on RVC's main campus.
The second semi-final between #2 Harper College and #3 Madison College will take place at noon with the regional championship match scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
The Golden Eagles have advanced to the regional championship match in every season since 2007 and won it the last two seasons under head coach Abby Jenkins before going on to finish third at the national tournament both seasons. In 2004 RVC finished runner-up at the national tournament under Ben Staupe, and won NJCAA national titles in 1996 and 1997 under Heidi Hutchison.
