About UIC Men's Volleyball
We are a group of students dedicated to playing on a competitive men's volleyball team that travels to tournaments throughout the Midwest and country. The team practices twice a week and travels to tournaments on the weekends. Because of the extreme rarity of men's NCAA volleyball teams, schools usually form athletic clubs, with the teams being a good compromise between athletics and fun. The team also plays NCAA, NAIA, and USAV teams in tournaments. We usually go to 3-4 tournaments in the fall semester, with the regular season in the spring, usually 4-5 tournaments, building up to Nationals.

2010-2011 Officers:
President: Brian Song - vbc.uic.men@gmail.com
Vice-President: Michael Flavin
Treasurer - Alex Yeung
Webmaster - Elvis Oliveric

2011-2012 Season Recap
In the Fall, the team was motivated to build off the success of the previous year and started off strong in tournaments at neighboring schools.

In the Spring, the club attended the marquee, annual Hoosier-Illini tournament held at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champagn. They entered the tournament without All-American setter Kha Tran and highlighted the tournament by defeating top ranked Ohio State University.

The team made it down to Nationals for the 3rd straight year with high expectations. Nationals were held in Kansas City, Missouri and competed in Division 1AA. The team went undefeated the first two days (3-0, 2-0) leading up to bracket play where they lost in the first round following a devastating injury to setter Kha Tran.

Middle Hitter Boris Oliveric was also selected as an All-American giving UIC two All-Americans in two years. The team graduated starting seniors Elvis Oliveric, Konrad Klimek, and Kha Tran but still look to compete at the same level as they have been the past three years.

2010-2011 Season Recap
The Fall semester started out on a high note as the team won their first tournament in 2 years at Wheaton College, beating out DePaul University in the finals. The team also had many big wins and upsets at their other tournaments, where they placed highly.

During the Spring semester, UIC hosted its own tournament and won against Lewis University in a marathon of a tournament. The semester was also highlighted by a Gold bracket finish in the marquee Hoosier-Illini tournament held in Indiana.

The team made the trip down to Houston, TX for the National Championship Tournament and competed in Division 1AA to finish in 9th place.

UIC is looking to build off of a very successful season with 2011-2012 coming up. They return All-American Setter Kha Tran along with the entire team and with a few more key pieces, look to bring a National Championship to Chicago.
