Men's Volleyball 2018 National Champions

LB Nation, 


We have officially ended one of the best Men’s Volleyball season’s in Beach history. Saturday, May 5th, we defeated UCLA at Pauley Pavilion to be crowned the NCAA Men’s Volleyball National Champions of 2018. The National Championship game began with a mantra carried on from the semifinal match against Ohio State. One More!  With our #1 Men’s Volleyball team needing only ONE MORE game to win until they would be National Champions, they were ready. We were ready! 


We spent the entire season building for this moment - we cultivated a family where trusting in your teammate became the foundation of our program. And when it came time to deliver, our guys rose to the occasion. Holding up the championship trophy was the culmination of our commitment.


Our Men’s Volleyball Players say it best: 


“When you get to play volleyball for Long Beach, you’re not playing just with a team; you’re playing for a culture.”- Nick Amado


“For as long as I can remember, being a kid and watching the bigger guys play college and international matches, I have wanted this. Being here now. It’s a dream come true.”- TJ DeFalco


With sights already set on another National Championship in 2019, we are calling on your support to kick off the road to a repeat. So let's keep this momentum going. Regardless of your commitment level, every dollar matters. Your participation is needed! We appreciate you making an investment in our Men’s Volleyball student-athletes that will inspire #LBNation for years to come. Go Beach!
