LAFAYETTE — Volleyball action returns to Earl K. Long Gym this weekend when the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns host their first Sun Belt Conference matches of the 2019 season.

In its first home weekend following a three-week road trip, Louisiana (5-10, 1-1 Sun Belt) meets Appalachian State on Friday followed by a matchup with Coastal Carolina on Saturday. Both contests begin at 6:30 p.m.

The Ragin’ Cajuns carry a four-match win streak on their home court into the weekend set with the Mountaineers (6-9, 2-0 Sun Belt) and Chanticleers (12-2, 2-0 Sun Belt).

The App State-Coastal weekend marks the first of six consecutive matches against the Sun Belt East Division which runs through Oct. 19.

Louisiana opened Sun Belt play last week with a split of the Texas road trip, dropping a tough four-set battle at Texas State then bouncing back with a strong offensive effort in a four-set triumph at UT Arlington.

Friday’s match with Appalachian State will air live on ESPN+, and will be tape-delayed on Cox Sports TV at 8 p.m. on Saturday evening.
