Volleyball Schedule Finalized
July 22, 2003
CORVALLIS, Ore. - After a few changes, the 2003 Oregon State volleyball schedule has been finalized.
The dates of this year's volleyball matches between Oregon State and Oregon have been switched from Friday nights to Thursday nights. The Beavers now will host the Ducks on Thursday, October 2, while the two teams will play at Oregon on Thursday, October 30.
Two other significant changes have been made since the schedule was originally posted on the osubeavers.com website in the spring.
The season-opening Oregon State Volleyball Showcase remains on Friday and Saturday, August 29-30. Originally, four matches were scheduled for Friday and two for Saturday in order to avoid a conflict with OSU's home opener for football, also scheduled for Saturday. Once the football game against Sacramento State was moved to Thursday, the Showcase schedule changed to the more traditional format of two matches on Friday and four on Saturday. Friday's matches feature Oregon State and Gonzaga at 5:00 p.m., followed by Mississippi State and Northern Arizona at 7:00 p.m. Saturday's action begins with Oregon State and Mississippi State at 10:00 a.m., with Gonzaga and Northern Arizona playing at noon. Gonzaga will face Mississippi State at 5:30 p.m., and OSU and NAU will close out the tournament at 7:30 p.m.
The final change to the schedule involves OSU's home matches with Arizona State and Arizona on November 13 and 14. The dates have not changed, but the opponents have flip-flopped. OSU now hosts ASU on Thursday, November 13 and Arizona on November 14.
