The USC Upstate volleyball team remains in the state of South Carolina this weekend as it travels down to North Charleston for the Wingate Invitational hosted by Charleston Southern inside Buccaneer Fieldhouse.

The Spartans enter the weekend with a 3-4 overall record after winning one match last week at the Liberty Invitational in Lynchburg, Va. USC Upstate is set to face North Carolina Central (4 p.m.) Friday, and South Carolina State (9 a.m.) and Charleston Southern (3 p.m.) Saturday.

Upstate opened the Liberty Invitational by falling to UNC Greensboro (3-2) and Murray State (3-0) before sweeping host Liberty in three sets during its final match. Kayla Eversgerd was awarded for her efforts by being named to the Liberty Invitational All-Tournament Team after leading the squad with two double-doubles while tallying 45 kills and 38 digs. Shannon Weiss and Kaleigh Kelley each had a team-high 46 digs, and Lexi Gober contributed 123 assists and five service aces. Four different players had two blocks apiece.
