RICHARDSON, Texas - The teams are set for the annual Lone Star Conference Volleyball Championship Tournament, which begins Thursday in San Angelo, Texas.
Angelo State earned the right to host the event as the league's champion for the first time since 1992 with an 18-2 record.
The eight-team, single-elimination tournament consists of four first-round matches on Thursday, followed by two semifinal games on Friday evening and the championship match on Saturday afternoon.
The top eight teams in the LSC will compete for the 2012 tournament championship. In addition to winning the title, the LSC tournament winner will receive the league's automatic berth into the NCAA Division II Championship tournament.
All the championship games will be aired live via internet video streaming at www.FoxSportsSouthwest.com. The webcasts are available free of charge. Each webcast includes both video and audio, with viewers needing only a computer with a high-speed DSL or cable modem connection to the internet. Veteran broadcaster Chris Needham has the call for all the games.
