INDIANAPOLIS — UC Santa Cruz received an At-Large bid to the 2019 NCAA Division III Men's Volleyball Tournament as announced by the NCAA on Monday morning.
The Banana Slugs will travel to Kenosha Wisconsin to face Carthage College, who enter the tournament at 23-2. The winner of that match faces the winner of Fontbonne and Milwaukee School of Engineering for the right to advance to the Final Four in Union, NJ.
"This has been a fantastic season of never giving up. I'm beyond proud of our student-athletes," said head coach Paul Leon. "They've made countless sacrifices to reach this moment and they each deserve it."
It is the first NCAA Bid for UCSC since 2015. The Banana Slugs won their final six games of the regular season to earn the postseason bid.
