CINCINNATI, Ohio---A 12-year old Cincinnati girl will be joining the University of Cincinnati volleyball team at the Healthy Choice Conference USA Tournament this week after winning a free trip courtesy of C-USA.

Abby Mayer, a student at Finneytown Middle School and a member of the volleyball team, will be attending the tournament in Chicago with her father, Bob, after qualifying through a serving contest at a Bearcat home match earlier this season.

?We are very excited that a Cincinnati fan won this trip,? said Bearcat head coach Reed Sunahara. ?It will be great to have another Bearcat fan at the tournament and we plan to include her as part of our team.?

Mayer, along with many other contestants at C-USA schools, qualified for the drawing for the trip by hitting a special C-USA Tournament shirt during the serving contest at the intermission of a volleyball match at UC. Her name was then drawn at random from the list of qualifiers from all C-USA schools.

The tournament is scheduled for Nov. 22-25 at the DePaul Athletic Center. The Bearcats enter the tournament as the number three seed after finishing the C-USA slate with an 11-2 mark and a 20-7 overall record.
