CEDAR CITY, Utah - The Southern Utah University volleyball program has announced their full schedule for the upcoming 2017-18 campaign.  

The Thunderbirds will have three non-conference tournaments before opening up Big Sky Conference play. They will compete in the 2017 Charlotte Invite in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Fullerton/Riverside Classic in Fullerton and Riverside, California, and the Amy Svoboda Memorial Classic hosted by Air Force in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

SUU will also have a pair of non-conference home events, one against Utah Valley University on August 29 and one against Utah State University on September 15.

The T-Birds will open up Big Sky Conference action at home on September 21, when they will host the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks inside the Centrum Arena.

“As excited as we are to compete in those three tournaments, which will be a good challenge for the team, we're really excited to have two in-state rivals come to the Centrum before Big Sky play begins,” SUU head coach Craig Choate said.
