Spartanburg, S.C. – The USC Upstate volleyball team wraps up non-conference play Tuesday evening as it hosts the Presbyterian College Blue Hose at 6 p.m. inside the Hodge Center.

Fans are encouraged to stick around following the match as the Spartans will be holding a team autograph session in the lobby of the Hodge Center.

Upstate opened ASUN play last Saturday with a 3-2 victory over NJIT for its first conference-opening match win since the 2010 season. The Spartans played in their eighth five-set match of the season and improved to 4-4 in those contests. Madison Haake extended her double-double streak to nine consecutive matches and was one of four Upstate players to compile double-doubles along with Montana Swanson, Callie Yeargin and Rebecca Shearer. Yeargin and Shearer both set new career-highs in kills as Yeargin tallied 18 and Shearer 17.

Presbyterian College heads into the matchup sporting a 2-13 overall record with wins this season over South Carolina State and Mississippi Valley State. The Blue Hose have dropped their first two Big South Conference matches this year against Charleston Southern and Radford. Presbyterian College is led by third-year head coach Korrinn Burgess.

The Spartans and Blue Hose are meeting for the 55th time in program history on Tuesday with Upstate holding a 31-23 lead in the all-time series. In the last meeting between the two teams, the Spartans earned a 3-1 victory on Sept. 11, 2015 at the Clemson Classic.
