Motivated Thunder Release 2021 Volleyball Schedule

Coach Lauren Sanders celebrates a point
Manhattan, Kan.

Fresh off of a truncated 2020 season the Thunder Volleyball team has a schedule set and is ready to roll into Coach Lauren Sanders 17th season. The ladies will open the year with the Thunder Invitational the final weekend of August as they play host to NAIA opponents Cottey College, Sterling College, York College and Central Christian College (KS). In 2020 the Thunder beat both Cottey and York while dropping their loan match to Sterling College. 

MCC will waste no time starting their run at the 2021 Midwest Christian College Conference title as they head to Belton, Mo for the new conference classic where they will play both Emmaus Bible College and Faith Baptist Bible College on September 3 & 4. The team will open their home slate of NCCAA SW Region matches on September 7 when they host the Falcons of Kansas Christian College. The Lady Thunder will thrive at home in the month of September with five home matches before they hit the road in October where they return home only once. 

The conference tournament will be played at the end of October as the ladies will head to Joplin, Mo as rival, Ozark Christian College, will host. MCC also won the conference tournament championship in 2020. The 2021 NCCAA SW Region Tournament is back in Texas this year at Dallas Christian College the first weekend in November. Should the Thunder advance to the NCCAA National Tournament they'll need to bring the sunscreen for a week of volleyball in the Sunshine State November 18-20.
