WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

 Midwestern State is set to make its eighth Lone Star Conference Tournament appearance and first since 2013 after the Mustangs were awarded the eighth and final seed in the championship field. 

Top seed Angelo State will play host to the three-day tournament beginning Thursday at the Junell Center in San Angelo as ASU looks for its second-straight LSC title. The 10th-ranked Rambelles will take on Midwestern State in the final quarterfinal match Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The winner will move on to face either No. 4 Eastern New Mexico or No. 5 Texas A&M-Commerce in the LSC semifinals Friday at 7:30 p.m.

In the other half of the bracket, No. 2 Tarleton State squares off against No. 7 Western New Mexico while No. 3 Texas A&M-Kingsville faces No. 6 West Texas A&M.

The LSC Championship is slated for Saturday at 3 p.m.

Midwestern State finished one game ahead of Texas Woman's to claim the final tournament spot with UT Permian Basin rallying from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Pioneers 22-20 in the fifth set and deny TWU a postseason bid.

The Mustangs come into the week with a 12-20 record on the season, doubling its win total from 2015 under second-year head coach Natalie Rawson.

Midwestern State made its first showing in the LSC Tournament in 2005 before qualifying for five-straight appearances from 2007-11 and another showing in 2013.

The Mustangs will take on Angelo State in the first round of the LSC Tournament for the third-straight time, also facing the Rambelles in 2011 and 2013.

All seven games of the LSC Tournament will be streamed live free of charge on LoneStarConference.org.
