Kentucky State Volleyball selected to the NCAA Tournament for a Second Consecutive Season

FRANKFORT, Kentucky -- Kentucky State University volleyball will head into the NCAA Division II Women's Volleyball Championship for the third time in four years, as announced on Monday evening.

The Thorobrettes (22-17) ran through the SIAC schedule and the championship tournament from Nov. 16-18 to a 13-4 conference record. KSU has been a dominating squad within the SIAC, claiming three of the last four conference tournaments, accumulating a .887 winning percentage during the four-year run.

Despite the impressive stretch, the KSU has yet to win a NCAA DII tournament contest.

KSU enters the tournament as a No. 8 seed and will take on a familiar foe in Palm Beach Atlantic (28-3). The Sailfish will host the South Regional bracket for the second straight season, and it will be the second consecutive season KSU will take on PBA in the opening round.

After defeating the Thorobrettes in 2015, the Sailfish went on to a historic run to the NCAA DII Championship match, where they fell 3-0 to Wheeling Jesuit (25-22, 26-24, 26-24).

The opening match between the Thorobrettes and Sailfish will take place on Dec. 1 in the Rubin Arena; a start time has not been announced at this time.
