HUNTINGDON, Pa. – The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has selected Juniata College as the host site for the 2014 men's volleyball championships. Juniata is only the third host in the history of the NCAA Division III title match.
"We are extremely excited to host the 2014 men's volleyball national championship," said Juniata Director of Athletics Greg Curley. "Juniata has a long and storied tradition in the sport of volleyball and this is a special opportunity for us to showcase the sport, Juniata College, and the Huntingdon community."
The Eagles will welcome the nations top teams in the semifinal and championship matches April 25-27, 2014 at the Kennedy Sports+Recreation Center.
The NCAA held the first ever Division III Championship at Springfield College earlier this year. Springfield won the inaugural title in straight sets over Carthage and hopes to defend their title at the 2013 championships hosted by Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J.
Juniata men's volleyball missed out on the NCAA tournament last season, falling to UC Santa Cruz 3-2 in the Continental Volleyball Conference semifinals (Apr. 14, 2012). After making the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) tournament, the Eagles went on to face Medaille in the championship match (April 21, 2012), but eventually fell in five (3-2) to end the season.
