LAFAYETTE - A total of 12 matches inside Earl K. Long Gym including the annual Sawyer Camillo Memorial Volleyball Classic and a homecoming trip to Chicago for setter Jessica Bartczyszyn are on the 2017 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns volleyball schedule.
The 10th season of competition under the direction of head coach Heather Mazeitis-Fontenot consists of 31 matches overall – 15 non-conference contests and a 16-match Sun Belt Conference slate.
The 2017 season begins in San Antonio, Texas, at the I-10 Cardinals Classic on the campus of Incarnate Word. The first serve of the campaign is set for 3 p.m. on Aug. 25 vs. UTEP. The Ragin' Cajuns wrap up the season-opening weekend facing Tulane and host-UIW on Aug. 26.
After a midweek visit to Southern Miss (Aug. 30), the first home matches take place during the Sawyer Camillo Memorial Volleyball Classic at E.K. Long Gym the weekend of Sept. 1-2.
This season's Sawyer Camillo Classic features the Ragin' Cajuns, Houston Baptist, Jacksonville State, Mississippi Valley and Nicholls. For the complete tournament schedule, click here.
Pre-conference tournament action concludes with trips to Houston (Sept. 8-9 Rice Invitational) and Chicago (Sept. 15-16 Chicago State Invitational). Bartczyszyn, a native of Chicago-area's Cary, Ill., has an opportunity to compete collegiately near her hometown for the first time.
Sun Belt Conference play starts Sept. 22-23 with the Georgia road trip. The following weekend, Louisiana welcomes Arkansas State (Sept. 29) and Little Rock (Sept. 30) for the first home SBC matches.
October begins with a non-conference matchup against Southeastern Louisiana on Oct. 3 followed by a home-and-home weekend against SBC in-state foe ULM.
The Ragin' Cajuns complete their home schedule as October comes to a close. A four-match homestand that runs Oct. 20-28 marks the final outings at E.K. Long Gym.
Louisiana finishes SBC play and ends the regular season with road trips to Alabama (South Alabama and Troy) and Texas (Texas State and UTA) the first two weekends in November. The Sun Belt Conference Volleyball Championship is scheduled for Nov. 16-19 at the Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Ark., on the campus of Arkansas State University.
