STEPHENVILLE – A new feature to TarletonSports.com for the 2018-19 season, ‘Week at a Glance’ presented by Mustang Ranch will come to the official home of Tarleton Athletics in addition to its usual location on our social media channels.

Each week will provide updates of the upcoming games for the week, as well as promotional information, game changes, ticket information, and anything else Tarleton fans will need to know to prepare for a week of competition.

This year will be the 25th season of competition for Tarleton as an NCAA program. Tarleton State University joined the NCAA in the fall of 1994.

The Tarleton Invitational Volleyball Tournament will provide a kick-off to the 2018-19 season as the defending volleyball champions of the Lone Star Conference welcome in seven teams for a two-day tournament over two courts. Tarleton will be played in Wisdom Gym with games also happening in the Rec Sports Center. The tournament finale will feature a pair of nationally-ranked foes as No. 18 Tarleton will host No. 16 Central Oklahoma in an AVCA Top 25 showdown in Wisdom Gym.

Tarleton Volleyball is closing in on a historic mark. Tarleton will open the season just three games under .500 (663-666) for its volleyball history and has a chance to provide an overall winning record for the program for the first time since 1978.
