The tournament allows regional opponents to meet at a single
location and play at least two games toward their regional
record. The regional record is then used to determine seeding
for the NCCAA regional championship tournament at the end of the
season. Six teams will meet at the Laughlin Center this weekend
for a chance to improve their seeding: Grace Bible College,
Kuyper College, Lincoln Christian University, Maranatha Baptist
Bible College, Moody Bible Institute and Northland International
The LCU Red Lions are looking forward to the opportunity.
"I'm really excited about how our team is progressing this
year," said head coach Amanda Bowman, "We are returning our two
leading scorers from last year, along with two other starters.
Freshmen newcomers will add talent to the returners from last
In addition, the 12-member Red Lions team will showcase the
size and athleticism of several players who are also volleyball
team members and competed in the NCCAA Division II National
Volleyball Tournament last month.
"Once we are able to get some time in the gym and build our
chemistry, we should be a contender for the NCCAA Midwest
Regional championship," Bowman added.
The event is free and open to the public. For more
