HICKORY – Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC) is preparing to play host to the Region X-travaganza in women’s volleyball for the fifth straight year.
The Red Hawks will be at home Friday and Saturday for the event in the Tarlton Complex with eight other teams from Region X, with the first match at 11 a.m. on Friday.
“The Region X-travaganza is always a great time for us to get together with our conference teams and have a great weekend of competition,” CVCC head coach Shannon Hudson said in a press release. “Of course we are sad that Cape Fear and Fayetteville Tech won’t be able to join us because they are recovering from Hurricane Florence, but it’s nice to have Region X together for this event.”
Among the teams in this year’s event are Surry Community College, Wake Tech Community College, Pitt Community College, USC Lancaster, USC Salkehatchie, Bryant & Stratton College, Louisburg College and Davidson County Community College.
The Red Hawks’ first match will be Friday at 12:30 p.m., their first match since playing in the Pasco-Hernando Bobcat Invitational in New Port Richey, Fla. on Sept. 8.
“We’ve had some really good practices this week, and the girls are anxious to play again,” Hudson said. “Although we missed our New York City tournament, I think the Owens and Pasco tournaments have prepared us well for this weekend, and I’m excited to see the team compete again.”
