  • LAFAYETTE – Matchups with seven teams that participated in postseason play last season and 13 home matches inside Earl K. Long Gym highlight the 2018 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Volleyball schedule.
     
    The 11th season of competition under the direction of head coach Heather Mazeitis-Fontenot consists of 30 matches overall – 14 non-conference contests and a 16-match Sun Belt Conference slate.
     
    The home schedule is once again highlighted by the Sawyer Camillo Classic, set for Aug. 31-Sept. 1. The tournament field consists of Houston, Mississippi Valley State, Nicholls and Sam Houston State.
     
    In pre-conference tournament play the Ragin' Cajuns will face NCAA Tournament participants USC and San Diego as well as National Invitational Volleyball Championship invitees SMU and TCU. In Sun Belt play, Louisiana meets postseason participants Coastal Carolina (NCAA), Arkansas State (NIVC) and Texas State (NIVC).
     
    Seeking to build upon the program's finest season in the Sun Belt Conference era (21-11, 13-3 SBC in 2017), Louisiana opens play with an exhibition against Houston Baptist on Aug. 18 at Earl K. Long Gym.
     
    Regular season action begins the following weekend in New Orleans at the Tulane-hosted I-10 Challenge Aug. 24-25. Louisiana kicks off the season-opening weekend at 4 p.m. on Aug. 24 vs. Incarnate Word, then concludes the three-match event with a matchup against the Green Wave at 7 p.m. the next evening.
     
    The Sawyer Camillo Classic transitions the Ragin' Cajuns into September. Louisiana meets Mississippi Valley State and Nicholls on Friday, then closes tournament play on Saturday against Sam Houston State and Houston.
     
    A midweek trip to Southern on Sept. 4 starts the final stretch of non-conference play which concludes with trips to TCU's Fight in the Fort (Sept. 7-8) and the SDSU/USD Challenge (Sept. 14-15) in San Diego.
     
    Sun Belt Conference play starts the weekend of Sept. 21-23 with West Division counterparts UT Arlington and Texas State visiting Earl K. Long Gym.
     
    September ends with the Coastal Carolina-Appalachian State trip (Sept. 28-30), then Louisiana alternates home and away weekends of SBC action the remainder of the season ending with Senior Weekend Nov. 9-11 at Earl K. Long Gym.
     
    The Sun Belt Conference Volleyball Championship is scheduled for Nov. 15-18 at the GSU Sports Arena in Atlanta on the campus of Georgia State University.
