Coach Smart, Deacs Release 2023 Spring Schedule

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest volleyball head coach Randi Smart and the program have released details of the 2023 spring schedule, announced on Friday (March 10).

A total of four dates make up the Demon Deacons’ slate. Times of competition are still to be determined.

Wake Forest will kick things off with participation in a weekend jamboree hosted by Triangle Volleyball Club in Raleigh on March 26, joining a field of multiple colleges. Two days later, the team will make a short trip to Greensboro to face the North Carolina A&T Aggies on their home court. This will be the first meeting between the two sides since the Deacs swept North Carolina A&T in a road victory on September 6.

The Deacons’ lone home showing of the spring is scheduled for April 7 when they bring in Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) foe Virginia Tech. Just under two weeks later, Wake Forest will play its final match of the semester at High Point.

“We are looking forward to getting back on the court and competing against people other than ourselves,” said head coach Randi Smart. “The team is making a lot of progress and our competition dates should show us where we currently are. We will have great action up through April.

“We would love for everyone to come out this spring! It is always great to see our fans and continue to meet new faces.”
