Weather Creates Change In FSU Volleyball Spring Travel Slate This Weekend


Big Rapids, Mich. - Weather has forced a change in the Ferris State University volleyball squad's spring schedule for this weekend.

The Bulldogs were slated to play in the Grand Rapids Sports Hall of Fame Showcase, but the event has been called off.

With the cancelation, Ferris State will now travel to the east side of the state and compete on Friday (April 13) evening at the Legacy Center in Brighton starting at 6 p.m. (ET).

On Saturday (April 14), FSU then will face a pair of NCAA Division I schools in the University of Michigan and Western Michigan on the Michigan campus in Ann Arbor beginning at 10 a.m. (ET) and 12 p.m. (ET).

Ferris State made its seventh consecutive NCAA Tournament bid this past fall and has advanced to at least the regional semifinals each of the last seven years. FSU's regional appearance this past year represented the program's 22nd all-time NCAA bid.

In 2017, FSU closed the year with a 24-8 overall mark and also captured the program's fourth-straight GLIAC Regular Season and Tournament Championships. FSU became the first school to ever win four consecutive league tourney crowns this past fall.

This past year also marked the 16th time in 22 seasons under head coach Tia Brandel-Wilhelm in which FSU had claimed at least 20 victories in a campaign. The Bulldogs also made their 20th consecutive GLIAC Tournament appearance this past season.
