May 9, 2015

I’m very excited!   My alma mater, Lewis University, has their men’s volleyball team playing in the NCAA National Championship game tonight!  Spread the word!  Share this story!

That’s right, people – small, but mighty, Lewis University out of Romeoville, IL (southwest Chicago suburb), of less than 7000 students, is in the finals of the NCAA national volleyball tournament.

The game tonight, May 9th, at 8:30pm CST, will be broadcast on ESPNU or ESPN3 (or, “The Tres”, as I like to call it).  The game is being played at Maples Pavilion in Stanford, California.

Lewis is 27-3 this season (game-by-game schedule/record) and is ranked #2 in the nation behind Loyola.  Their only losses came to BYU and Ohio State during the regular season, and to Loyola in the tournament.  Lewis beat Loyola twice during the regular season.  Now, in the National Collegiate Championship, Lewis will get a chance to avenge their loss to Loyola, the defending National Champions, as they will play them for the fourth time this season with the National Title on the line.

Lewis beat Penn State in the semi-finals to advance to the finals.  During the regular season they beat such teams at Stanford, Harvard, and Ohio State.

You can watch the game tonight on ESPNU or ESPN3 (WatchESPN).  You can also listen in on live WJOL radio (1340).

There is also a “watch party” for Lewis Alumni at Buffalo Wild Wings in Romeoville, IL. If you’re in the area consider coming out and cheering on the Flyers.

Go Flyers!
