KINGSVILLE, Texas — Ottawa University played its first beach volleyball matches in program history over the weekend.

Unfortunately for the new program, the Braves were unable to notch a win, but saw good competition Saturday and Sunday at the Emerald Beach Hotel Invitational in Kingsville, Texas, hosted by Texas A&M-Kingsville.

OU played four total matches — two each day — against Texas A&M-Tarleton State, Texas A&M-Kingsville, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and the University of New Orleans.

The team’s scheduled Monday match at Missouri Baptist Univeristy in St. Louis, Missouri, was cancelled due to rain. The Braves (0-4) are back in action starting 2 p.m. Thursday at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. They will play matches against Central Arkansas and Missouri State.
