Now you know that being a University of Tampa Alumnus, I am looking for any and every opportunity to promote UT Athletics!

I must admit, that this recognition is long overdue though for our Women's Volleyball team as they have had yet another phenomenal season!

Our girls, at (28-2) are set to make their 14th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament and 25th overall trip in 30 seasons. The Spartans are coming off of their fifth consecutive Sunshine State Conference title to give the program 19 overall.

UT will play host to Albany State in Thursday's opening round in the 7:30 p.m. match. The winner of the South Regional will advance to the NCAA Elite Eight which will be held at a campus site to be determined.

Tickets may be purchased at the gate for $10 (adults) and $6 (students with ID/senior citizens). Children under the age of five shall be admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.

Go out and support my Spartans as they look to bring home another national Championship trophy!

Thats all for now, but stay tuned for more Tampa Bay Sports updates from Jerm and your Tampa Bay team!
