UNO volleyball will play a 16-match regular season beginning Jan. 31 as the Summit League announced its plan for fall sports on Wednesday.
The volleyball schedule, delayed because of COVID-19, will run from Jan. 31 through March 27. The nine league members will play a double round-robin format with teams playing the same opponent twice at one site on consecutive days.
The league tournament will take place April 2-3 at The Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
UNO returns all-league hitters Sadie Limback and Anna Blaschko and all-league setter Sami Clarkson from a team that was runner-up at last year's league tournament.

The league also announced its regular season will begin on Feb. 12. The nine women's teams will play a 16-match regular season, with the top four teams advancing to the tournament.
"We are delighted the Summit League has chose Omaha as the site for this year's league tournament," said UNO women's coach Tim Walters, whose team went 5-11-2 last season.
The UNO men, 4-9-4 last season, will begin play Feb. 13. There will be no league tournament on the men's side as the automatic bid at the NCAA Tournament will go to the regular-season champion. The six league teams will play each other twice.
