Allstate Sugar Bowl Volleyball

The Allstate Sugar Bowl has been involved with the volleyball scene for many years, and 2017 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 on Saturday evening to capture its first title in the event since 2009. It was the 16th edition of the Sugar Bow-sponsored event. Sophomore libero Kaylie McHugh earned the tournament’s MVP award, as well as 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.
