CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte 49ers volleyball team will look to continue its spring improvements participating in the Yellow Jacket Spring Challenge hosted by Georgia Tech in Atlanta. Along with host Georgia Tech and Charlotte, Tennessee, Georgia Southern and Chattanooga will take part in the Saturday action.
Charlotte took the Halton Arena floor for the one and only time in the spring last weekend battling with Winthrop and UNC Greensboro.
“The team is showing improvement from last weekend,” commented Head Coach Gokhan Yilmaz. “We will look to continue getting better against quality competition in Atlanta this weekend.”
Saturday will mark the second time in three weeks the Niners have faced ACC opponents playing in N.C. State’s spring tournament two weeks ago. Charlotte will face host Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern and Tennessee playing in a match format consisting of best two out of three sets playing to 25. If matches get to a decisive third, that set will be played to 15.
This will be the second-to-last spring tournament of the season as Charlotte wraps up next weekend in Chapel Hill.
