WAC women's volleyball tournament back in Vegas in 2010
The Western Athletic Conference today announced that the 2010 WAC Women's Volleyball Tournament will return to the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
“The 2009 WAC Volleyball Tournament was a huge success,” Commissioner Karl Benson said in a press statement. “The Orleans Arena provided a great tournament environment for our student-athletes and fans and we expect another successful tournament there next November.”
The 2010 WAC Volleyball Tournament will be held Nov. 22-24 and will include the top six teams in the regular-season standings.
It will be the first of two WAC Tournaments to be held at the venue during the 2010-2011 school year, as the 2011 and 2012 WAC Basketball Tournaments will be held at the Orleans Arena, as well.
The University of Hawaii Rainbow Wahine own the most titles with 10, including the last 10 in a row.
The WAC Volleyball Tournament is a single-elimination event with the top two seeds receiving first-round byes and the champion earning the conference’s automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament. The full schedule can be found below.
