MILWAUKEE – Under the direction of first-year head coach Dan Dresen, the Alverno volleyball team has announced its Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference slate of games for the upcoming 2019 season.
Last year Alverno picked up one win in league play and will look to add to that total under the new leadership of the program's seventh head coach.
This year the Inferno will compete in 12 conference matches for the second consecutive season following the league's addition of Illinois Tech in 2018.
The Inferno will open the 2019 conference season with Edgewood on September 18 in Madison at 7 p.m. Less than a week later Alverno visits Lakeland on September 24, which also begins at 7 p.m. inside Woltzen Gymnasium.
On Saturday, September 28 the Inferno welcome in Concordia Chicago for the first home conference matchup of 2019 for a 12 p.m. start inside Reiman Gymnasium.
As the calendar shifts to October, Alverno will host a pair of conference opponents over the weekend of October 4-5 beginning with Concordia Wisconsin on Friday evening for a 7 p.m. first serve, followed the next day by a home matchup with Wisconsin Lutheran at 12 p.m. on Saturday.
A trip to Fond du Lac follows on Tuesday, October 8, when Alverno visits Marian as the Inferno will look to build off of last season's four-set matchup with the Sabres. The following weekend will see Alverno visit Aurora on Friday, October 11 before a matchup with Benedictine in Illinois on Saturday, October 12 at 12 p.m.
On Friday, October 18 the Inferno will welcome Dominican to Reiman Gymnasium for a 7 p.m. first serve before hosting MSOE on October 22, also at 7 p.m. The conference schedule rounds out with a trip to Illinois Tech on October 25 before the final home matchup of the season takes place on Wednesday, October 30 at 7:30 p.m.
The 2019 postseason will begin with first round matchups on Tuesday, November 5 as the third and fourth seeds host the fifth and sixth seeds, respectively. The league semifinals will take place on Thursday, November 7 before a league champion is crowned on Saturday, November 9.
