HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- A volleyball tournament that the Northen Kentucky University women's team was scheduled to compete in has been canceled due to Hurricane Harvey.

The Norse were due to open their season in the Barcelona HBU Classic at Houston Baptist University Friday and Saturday.

HBU announced the tournament was canceled because the storm is expected to reach Category 3 by the time it hits the Texas coastline late Friday or early Saturday.

The Norse will now start their season in Pittsburgh Sept. 1 at the Duquesne Invitational.
