CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The MIT women's volleyball team will begin its 2011 campaign with its first appearance at the two-day Regis College Tournament on September 2. The tournament is one of six the Engineers will be playing in throughout the season in addition to a nine-match NEWMAC schedule.
MIT continues tournament play the weekend of September 9 at Vassar College before kicking off conference action at Mount Holyoke College on September 13. The Cardinal and Gray's first contest in Rockwell Cage is a tri-match with NEWMAC foe Clark University and Simmons College, marking MIT's first meeting with the Boston-based squad.
Pivotal league matches against Wellesley College (September 20) and NCAA Tournament qualifier Springfield College (September 27) sandwich the MIT Invitational which features several of the top teams in New England along with newcomers Frostburg State University and Newbury College.
In addition to competing at the Johnson & Wales University (September 30-October 1), MIT Quad (October 14-15), and Hall of Fame Tournaments (October 21-22), the Engineers will square off in five NEWMAC matches, with the finale occurring on October 29 at conference champion U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
