CHARLESTON, SC – The Clemson volleyball team earned a second place finish in the College of Charleston Spring Tournament on Saturday. The Tigers had a 3-1 record in first round of pool play to earn a top seed for the playoffs held later that afternoon.

The Tigers opened the competition with a win over Charlotte and followed that with a victory against Coastal Carolina. The team fell in its third match of the day to the College of Charleston before rebounding to defeat Charleston Southern.

The 3-1 record during the pool play format earned Clemson one of the two top seeds and a first-round bye in the afternoon’s playoffs.

The Tigers avenged their morning loss to the Cougars with a victory over the host-school in the semifinals to advance to the finals of the tournament. Clemson then fell to North Carolina in three sets in the finals to finish second. The teams played a best two-out-of-three format in the playoffs.
