Womens Volleyball

Women's Volleyball is a Fall semester sport at Rhodes State. The Lady Baron's compete against other teams in the Ohio Regional Campus Conference as well as some regional NCAA D-III and NAIA women's volleyball teams. There is a regular season champion and an end of the season state tournament. Ten teams make up the conference, and the program here at Rhodes State has been one of the strongest in the conference in past years. We follow the rules and regulations set forth by the NCAA.
