SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento State sand volleyball squad will host a three-day, dual-meet tournament this Friday through Sunday at the Sacramento Softball Complex.

Dubbed the Sacramento State Invitational, the eight-team tournament field will consist of the Hornets, Boise State, Cal Poly, California, Pacific, 10th-ranked Saint Mary's, San Francisco and Santa Clara.

A total of 13 matches will be played over the three days. Four matches will be played on Friday, with two taking place at 3 p.m., and two more at 6 p.m. On Saturday, eight matches will be played, with two taking place at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. On Sunday, Hornets will take on Boise State at 11 a.m. to conclude the three-day event.

Each team will play at least two matches during the tournament, and Sacramento State will play five times (twice on Friday, twice on Saturday, once on Sunday).

Sand volleyball is in just its second year of existence at Sacramento State, and the Hornets have played just nine matches in school history. One of those matches came earlier this season on March 19 in the team's season opener when the Hornets fell to Saint Mary's, 5-0.

All matches will take place at the Sacramento Softball Complex of the City of Sacramento Department of Parks and Recreation. The complex has a lighted four-court sand volleyball facility, and is located at 3450 Longview Drive, which is near Watt Avenue and Business 80.

Admission and parking is free. Spectators are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets. Outside food and drinks, as well as pets are not allowed inside the complex.
