Kentucky Christian University has released its volleyball schedule for the upcoming fall.
With their new home in the two-division Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC), KCU volleyball finds itself in the AAC North Division.
Conference schedules are structured so that each team will play every school in their “division,” both home and away, while playing all teams in the other division only once per season.
The North consists of Bluefield College, Bryan College, Milligan College, Montreat College, Tennessee Wesleyan University and Union College, in addition to the Knights. Of that group, Milligan appears to be the class of the division coming off a 2018 NAIA National Tournament appearance and only losing one player to graduation.
In the South, Reinhardt University also finished the 2018 campaign at nationals and earned the #25 spot in the final poll of the season. KCU will host RU in the Damron Hall of Champions on Oct. 25.
The remainder of the South division are Allen University, Brenau University, Columbia International University, Columbia College, Point University, St. Andrews University and Truett-McConnell College.
The season kicks off with a scrimmage on Aug. 24, versus Ohio-Chillicothe at 1 p.m. in Grayson. Aug. 27 the team travels to Pikeville to face the University of Pikeville at 7 p.m.
