CCSA Beach Tournament Bracket Set

BATON ROUGE – The No. 3 LSU Beach Volleyball team will travel to Huntsville, Alabama later this week to compete in the CCSA Tournament from April 23-April 25 at the John Hunt Sand Volleyball Complex.

The CCSA Tournament is split into two brackets, the aqua and the blue. The Tigers will compete as the second seed in the double-elimination aqua bracket against No. 1 Florida State, No. 3 TCU, No. 4 South Carolina, No. 5 Tulane, No. 6 College of Charleston, No. 7 Missouri State and No. 8 UNC-Wilmington.

The CCSA says it will administer two brackets in 2021 to establish both groups with a minimum of at least a six-team membership in anticipation of a formal split no later than the 2022 Championship. By competing as aligned, both groups will have the necessary two-year continuity needed to be eligible for automatic qualification in 2022.

The aqua bracket is organized in the same manner as the NCAA Championship Tournament will be, May 7-9, in a double-elimination format with eight teams.

LSU will square up against Missouri State at 11:30 a.m. CT on Friday in the first round. If the Tigers win they will move on to Saturday where they will face the winner of TCU vs. College of Charleston. The losers of LSU vs. Missouri State and TCU vs. College of Charleston will meet later on Friday for an elimination match.

The championship for the aqua bracket will take place Sunday, April 25 at 1:30 p.m. The semi-finals and finals will be broadcast via the CCSA Facebook page.

The John Hunt Sand Volleyball Complex is a 17-acre professional sand volleyball complex in the heart of Huntsville, Alabama.
