Two full days of Volleyball this week-end at Bridgewater College Invitational




Five teams will make their way into the Gym at Niniger Hall this Friday and Saturday as the Lady Eagles of Bridgewater College host their 2008 Bridgewater Invitational. Play is scheduled to begin Friday afternoon and run all day on Saturday with BC playing one match against each one of their guests.

* Bridgewater College
* Sweet Briar Vixens (just north of Lynchburg)
* Randolph College Wildcats (Lynchburg)
* Southern Virginia University Lady Knights (Beanu Vista)
* Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens (California)

Bridgewater enters the event with an 8-1 mark with two victories over tourney foes. The Lady Eagles collected 3-0 sweeps over both Southern Virginia University and Randolph College earlier this season.

SVU will enter the tourney with a mark of 8-6, including a 3-1 mark down at the Emory & Henry tournament. Their lone loss down at E & H came at the hands of Bridgewater by a 3-0 score. The Lady Knights also played Sweet Briar earlier this month and defeated the Vixens 3-1 at Sweet Briar.

Randolph College is 4-8 on the season with a match tonight against Mary Baldwin before the tourney starts. The Lady Wildcats have made one trip up to BC this season (Loss 3-0) but have not faced any of the other squads to date.

Sweet Briar College (Vixen) is 4-9 and has faced Southern Virginia University (Loss 3-1) .

Ponoma-Pitzer Sagehens are making a cross country trek to our Valley as their campus is just a few miles outside of Los Angles. They bring a 5-3 mark into the event with no common opponets.

5 teams will be playing 4 matches each so if you do the math, you will see there will be 10 matches played during the two day event. After doing a little digging around for the full schedule here is what I can tell you about the matches:

Bridgewater: 6:00 PM Friday vs. Southern Virginia
10:00 AM Saturday vs. Randolph College
Noon Saturday vs. Sweet Briar
5:00 PM Saturday vs. Ponoma-Pitzer

4 matches in the books and 6 more to search out...

Sweet Briar : 4:00 PM Friday vs. Ponoma-Pitzer
6:00 PM Friday vs. Randolph College
3:00 PM Saturday vs. Southern Virginia

7 Accounted for, three to go : Still need Southern Virginia vs. Randolph, SVU vs. Ponoma-Pitzer and then Randolph vs. Ponoma-Pitzer...

The campus should be hopping as the BC Football team will host Ferrum at 1:00 PM on Saturday as well. Plenty of reasons to make your way over to Bridgewater College this week-end!
