KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has released the pool assignments and schedule for the 2023 NAIA Women’s Volleyball Championship in Sioux City, Iowa.

The Bulldogs (22-6 overall) advanced to the tournament’s 24-team final site Saturday with a three-set sweep over host Southwestern Assemblies of God University (Texas) in the Opening Round. Their first visit in school history to the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City, Iowa, begins Nov. 29 with a 12 p.m. MT match against Concordia (24-3), and they will play at the same time Nov. 30 against Midland (16-11).

The fourth-ranked Concordia (Neb.) powered through a competitive first set and ran away from visiting Judson University (Ill.), 25-19, 25-14, 25-17, in their home opening round matchup. The Bulldogs of Concordia enter with a 24-3 record and a conference record of 14-2.

Midland (Neb.) proved to be too much for Kansas Wesleyan in the NAIA Opening Round as they came away with a four-set victory (25-15, 25-13, 22-25, 25-13). It will be the Warriors’ tenth trip in program history, the first coming in the 2013 season.

The eight pool champions open bracket play with the Dec. 2 quarterfinal round. The semifinals are set for Dec. 4, and the championship for Dec. 5.
