Covenant & Meredith Picked as USA South Volleyball Favorites

The USA South Athletic Conference's volleyball coaches have released their 2019 preseason polls. Each divisional preseason poll only includes votes from coaches within that particular division-only. Head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting.

The 2019 USA South Tournament will once again take place on campus sites. The top-six seeded teams from each division will advance to the tournament. The top-two overall seeds from each division will host first and quarterfinal matches on Tuesday, November 5. The winners of the quarterfinal contests will travel to the highest remaining seed who will host the semifinals and finals which will be played on November 8-9.
