Brown Releases 2007 Volleyball Schedule

Aug. 16, 2007

Providence, RI - Brown Head Coach Diane Short has announced the 2007 Brown volleyball schedule, which will see the Bears playing 24 matches starting Sept. 7. The Bears will host 10 matches, including the annual Brown Invitational on Sept. 21 and 22.

The Bears open play with tough non-conference competition in three tournaments. The season begins at the Hurricane Invitational, hosted by the University of Miami, where Brown will face Delaware and Loyola Chicago in addition to the Hurricanes. The following weekend, the UAlbany Classic will match Bruno up with Northeastern, Eastern Michigan, and host Albany.

The Bears open at home once again with the Brown Invitational, as the team will host Stony Brook, Central Connecticut State, and Portland. After a road contest for the unofficial state championship at Rhode Island, Brown opens Ivy play at Yale on Sept. 29. The team's first five Ivy matches are on the road, but if the Bears can make it through that stretch, they could make some noise in the Ivy standings with seven of their final nine matches at the Pizzitola Center.
