Carroll Saints Announce Volleyball Schedule`

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

The 2014 Carroll College Volleyball Schedule has been released and the Fighting Saints are set to play 26 regular season games, with 14 conference games.

Carroll College is coming off a 17–18 overall record and finished in fifth place in Frontier Conference play with a 9–7 record.

The Fighting Saints, who two years ago reached the NAIA National Tournament, will look to regain that form in 2014, but will do so with a very difficult non-conference schedule.

"This has to be the most impressive schedule that we have had in my time as coach.  Last year we faced some terrific opponents, but this year has even more of the upper-echelon schools, of course playing the defending national champion is something our girls will gear up for at home," Carroll College head coach Moe Boyle said.

Carroll will face tough competition in their non-conference tournaments as the Fighting Saints have trips to Des Moines, IA and Irvine, CA prior to hosting the Big Sky Challenge in Helena September 5-6.

Carroll is set to play the top-three finishing teams from last year, including defending National Champion, University of Texas-Brownsville. Also on the Saints' schedule are last year's runner up, Biola University, and 2013 national semifinalist and 2012 National Champion, Concordia-Irvine.

"Our fans will have the chance to come see both national finalists from last season here as we host the Big Sky Challenge, it's going to be a fantastic event and will be incredible preparation for conference play," Boyle added. 

With a schedule littered with heavy-hitters, the Fighting Saints also play four more road matches than home competitions.

Carroll will begin the season on August 22, as they face St. Francis (IL) at the Grand View Tournament in Iowa.

The Saints will open their home schedule on September 5 against College of Idaho, a top-25 finisher last year.

In all, Carroll College's schedule includes a staggering seven top-25 teams from last year's final poll, not to mention the past two national champions.

Carroll College will open Frontier Conference play on September 11, hosting Montana – Western in Helena.

The Fighting Saints will wrap up the regular season against Lewis-Clark State in Lewiston, ID. 

The Frontier Conference Tournament is scheduled to begin November 14 and the NAIA National Tournament will begin in Sioux City, IA on December 2.
