Allstate Sugar Bowl Volleyball
The Allstate Sugar Bowl has been involved with the volleyball scene for many years, and 2018 will again see the organization sponsor a pair of major events in the sport. In addition to continuing to sponsor the Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Volleyball Classic, hosted by Tulane University, the Sugar Bowl Committee was the title sponsor for an AAU Girls Volleyball Super Regional, hosted by Louisiana Volleyball, at Loyola University on Memorial Day weekend, for the eighth year in a row.
Allstate Sugar Bowl Women’s Volleyball Collegiate Classic
Tulane University, the host of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Volleyball Classic, posted a solid 3-1 victory over Oklahoma to capture its first title in the event since 2009. It was the 16th edition of the Sugar Bowl-sponsored event. Sophomore libero Kaylie McHugh earned the tournament’s MVP award, as well as earning Defensive Player of the Tournament recognition.
The Green Wave defeated Southern Miss, 3-1, on Friday in the opening match of the tournament. Then in Saturday’s first match, the Wave rolled over Nicholls State, 3-0. Oklahoma also stopped Southern Miss and Nicholls to set up the true championship match of the round-robin event on Saturday evening.

JVA World Challenge
Over 1,600 student-athletes took part in the 2010 JVA World Challenge sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl on April 2-4 at the Ernest J. Morial Convention Center. The event featured 165 girls youth volleyball teams from 13 states as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. The top two teams in each division were awarded free entry to the AAU Championships to be held in June in Orlando.
Cajunland Volleyball Classic
The Allstate Sugar Bowl was a long-time sponsor of the Cajunland Volleyball Classic at the Convention Center as well. That well-known event did not return after the events of Hurricane Katrina, though the bowl did host another club volleyball event in 2009 which featured 60 teams.
