Union Volleyball Wins Region Title, Advance to NAIA Nationals for First Time

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - 11/20/2004 - The Union University Lady Bulldog volleyball team won the 2004 NAIA Region XI Tournament on Saturday by defeated No. 10 Georgetown College (Ky.) 3-2 (30-24, 18-30, 26-30, 34-32, 15-10). This marked the second win of the season for Union over Georgetown. Union, ranked No. 14 in the NAIA, defeated Martin Methodist College (Tenn.) 3-0 (30-24, 30-25, 30-20) in the semifinal match earlier in the day. The region title for Union earns the Lady Bulldogs an automatic bid to the NAIA National Volleyball Tournament for the first time in Union volleyball history. Union improves to 29-3 on the season.

Union’s volleyball coach Brian Dunn has taken the Union softball team to the NAIA National Tournament on five different occasions; however, this will be the first appearance for Union volleyball. This season for Union has been a great success as Union has posted a 29-3 overall record. Union swept through the TranSouth Conference regular season with a perfect 10-0 mark to earn the regular season title. Union then won the TranSouth Conference Tournament Championship with three straight wins. Now, Union has done some that hasn’t been accomplished in the seven-year history of Union volleyball. The Lady Bulldogs took home the NAIA Region XI Tournament title as the No. 2 seed. Georgetown was seeded No. 1 in the region.

The NAIA National Volleyball Tournament will take place in San Diego, California on Wednesday, December 1 through Saturday, December 4.
