Chattanooga Volleyball Releases 2024 Schedule

  • Monday, June 17, 2024
 The Chattanooga indoor volleyball team has officially released its 31-match schedule for the upcoming 2024 season, as announced by head coach Julie Torbett Thomas on Monday.
 
Consisting of 13 home matches, 12 road matches and an additional six neutral site contests, the Mocs’ 2024 campaign is set to begin August 30 with UTC traveling to the team’s season-opening tournament at Alabama A&M. This will mark Coach Torbett Thomas’ third season at the helm of the program.
 
“I am really excited about the overall schedule,” Torbett Thomas said.
“We should be able to get a lot of players some playing time early on and gel as a team before conference. We are looking forward to hosting our tournament again in Chattanooga but our main focus is being ready for the SoCon Tournament in November.”
 
Fans will have the opportunity to see Chattanooga’s 2024 squad in action for the first time on August 22 with the Mocs hosting their annual Blue-Gold Scrimmage at Maclellan Gymnasium at 5 p.m. ET. The event is free and open to the public, as are all of UTC’s home matches this season.
 
The Mocs will then travel to Huntsville for their first of four non-conference tournaments to open the year, with UTC slated to take on Southern Illinois on August 30, Idaho and Alabama A&M on August 31, and Oral Roberts on September 1.
 
UTC then heads back to host not only the team’s home-opener, but also the annual Chattanooga Classic at Maclellan Gymnasium running September 6-7. This tournament will see the Mocs battling the likes of Tennessee State, Charleston Southern and Belmont. The Mocs will then also host Jacksonville State for an additional non-conference clash on September 10 with that match against the Gamecocks set to start at 6 p.m. ET.
 
Next on the docket for Chattanooga would be the SIUE Tournament in Edwardsville, Illinois, which will take place September 13-14. Aside from taking on host SIUE, the Mocs will also find themselves against Bellarmine and Murray State. UTC will then close out its non-conference tournament schedule the following weekend at the Virginia Tech Tournament, September 19-20. The Mocs will match up first against Rider while in Blacksburg, before rounding out the weekend slate with a Power 5 opponent in Virginia Tech that same day.
 
UTC’s first Southern Conference match of the season lies on September 29 with the Mocs hosting Samford at 2 p.m. ET. This will mark the first of Chattanooga’s 16 SoCon matches this year. A little further down the schedule the Mocs will have their final non-conference match on the road against Austin Peay on October 29.
 
The Mocs will host their Senior Day weekend November 1-2 with SoCon foes Mercer and Furman coming to town on each of those days, respectively. It is anticipated that UTC’s November 2 match against the Paladins will serve as the team’s official Senior Day, and that matches is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. ET.
 
Chattanooga’s final regular season match will be in Johnson City, Tennessee, against in-state rival ETSU. The Bucs and Mocs are slated to wrap up their regular seasons on November 16. This will then lead right into the Southern Conference Tournament, which will run November 21-23 in Asheville, North Carolina.
