Nuggets' home opener offers free admission to all at XU

September 13, 2013

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana has announced ticket prices for its 2013 women's volleyball home schedule, which will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday when the Gold Nuggets play Voorhees at the Convocation Center.
     Xavier will offer free admission to:
     •  Students with a valid XU ID.
     •  XU faculty and staff.
     •  Children age 12 and younger.
     •  High school teams, which must contact XU coach Hannah Lawing at least 24 hours before a match at (504) 520-7255.
     Adult tickets will cost $5. The Convocation Center will open one hour before all home matches.
     XU women's volleyball played its final match at The Barn on Nov. 1, 2012.

The Gold Nuggets jumped for joy after closing The Barn, XU's previous home facility, with a five-set victory against SUNO on Nov. 1, 2012.
     The Gold Nuggets (6-7) will play at home after 13 consecutive road matches to start the season. It will be the first volleyball match in the Convocation Center, a $25-million facility which seats nearly 4,000 and opened to the public in November. It also will be the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference opener for the Nuggets, who are two-time defending GCAC regular-season and tournament champions.
     Voorhees, which joined the GCAC in July, is the first of three XU home opponents in five days. Xavier will play GCAC opponent Fisk at 7 p.m. Monday and city rival Loyola at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
     Approximate address of the Convocation Center is 7910 Stroelitz St., New Orleans LA 70125. The facility is one block from two major streets, South Carrollton and Washington avenues.
