LOS ANGELES -
The USC men’s volleyball team and women’s beach volleyball team will be hosting the third annual USC Legends Beach Volleyball Tournament on Friday, Nov. 4 and Saturday, Nov. 5 at Merle Norman Stadium.
Current players from the USC men’s indoor team and the defending NCAA champion women’s beach team will join former Trojan legends in a sand tournament. Among the Trojan greats are former College Players of the Year Bryan Ivie and Tony Ciarelli, two-time Olympians Celso Kalache and Donald Suxho, All-American Riley McKibbin and current beach pro Maddison McKibbin. Pool play in the four-person tournament will begin at 6 p.m. on Friday, with single-elimination play beginning at 9 a.m on Saturday. Matches hope to conclude prior to the kickoff of USC’s Homecoming football game against Oregon (time still to be determined).
Serving as Honorary Legend of the tournament will be USC great Celso Kalache. Kalache, a 1972 and 1976 Brazilian Olympian and a 1977 first team All-American, led USC to the 1977 NCAA Championship where he was named NCAA All-Tournament MVP.
Entry fee per player begins at $75, which includes food and parking. Spectator tickets begin at $5. All proceeds benefit the USC men’s indoor and women’s beach teams.
