FORT COLLINS, Co. – With a second-place finish in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Georgia Tech volleyball earned its second-straight bid to the National Invitational Volleyball Championship. Tech will host Alabama A&M, Troy and North Carolina A&T in the opening round, facing off against Alabama A&M on Friday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m.
Making its second-straight NIVC appearance, Tech topped South Florida in the opening round at O’Keefe last season before falling to College of Charleston in the second round.

It marked the Jackets’ highest finish in conference play since 2004 when they went undefeated to claim the regular season title. Strong at home as always, Tech finished the regular season with a 13-1 record in O’Keefe Gymnasium.
