Northwestern Volleyball Unveils 2023 Spring Schedule

EVANSTON, Ill. (February 27, 2023) – Northwestern University head volleyball coach Shane Davis announced the Wildcats’ 2023 spring schedule on Monday.  Davis’ squad will play five matches in the non-traditional season.

Northwestern raises the curtain on its spring slate by heading north to Milwaukee, Wis. on March 3 to take on Marquette, which finished 29-4 in 2022 en route to advancing to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.
After taking nearly a month off from competition, the ‘Cats return to action on April 1, visiting another 2022 NCAA Tournament qualifier in Big Ten rival Purdue.  A return to Milwaukee awaits just under two weeks later, where Northwestern will take on both Green Bay and Milwaukee on April 14.  A date with local rival Loyola on April 22, the Wildcats’ third of the spring against an NCAA Tournament participant, closes out the spring schedule.
Davis piloted Northwestern to an 18-14 finish (7-13 B1G) in 2022, his seventh in charge in Evanston.  The ‘Cats 18 victories were the program’s most since a 20-win campaign in 2010.  Northwestern picked up three wins over ranked opponents, highlighted by a thrilling five-set win on the road over then No. 7 Minnesota, the first road victory over a top-10 opponent in Wildcat annals.
