MEMPHIS, Tenn. –The University of Memphis volleyball team will play a 31-match slate in 2012 that features 16 home matches, head coach April Jauregui announced Friday.

“Our staff is getting ready for the start of the 2012 season,” Memphis head coach April Jauregui said. August 8th (the start of preseason camp) is only 67 days away! The 2012 schedule includes some exciting changes. This year we see the return of the CUSA Conference Tournament. It is all too fitting considering this will be the final year for CUSA as we know it and our last year before making the jump to the Big East in 2013.

“We will also be playing a few local non-conference mid-week matches. Our pre-season is jammed packed with matches. In just 4 weeks we will play 14 matches. This will be great preparation for the rigorous conference schedule.”

The Tigers will travel to Charleston, S.C. and Toledo, Ohio for preseason tournaments in addition to hosting two tournaments with five teams each at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse.

“I am thrilled to be hosting 2 pre-season tournaments this year,” Jauregui said. “I wanted to play a lot of regional teams and bring some great volleyball to the Elma Roane Fieldhouse.”

The 2012 season marks the senior campaigns for Marija Jovanovic, Maja Kostic and Altrese Hawkins, all of whom have had major impacts on the program. Hawkins is 439 kills away from tying the program record.

“Last, but certainly not least, we will celebrate the senior campaign of Tiger players Marija, Maja and Altrese. I know they want to make this season magical and one to remember. We will look to them for leadership and consistency on the court.”

The Tigers are coming off their most successful season in five years. Memphis posted the most wins (20) since Jauregui took over and won three preseason tournaments. Altrese Hawkins was named to Conference USA’s All-First Team for the second straight season, and the Tigers finished the season with a 20-13 record.
