After coming off of a tournament gaining its first program win, the Nicholls State University beach volleyball team competed in the UNO Beach Volleyball Invitational. 

The team played against Spring Hill College, University of Louisiana-Monroe, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and University of New Orleans (UNO). 

On March 6, Emily Venable and Emily Gauthreaux were able to come up with a win in a set against Spring Hill College, with scores of 19-21, 22-20 and 15-11. The Colonels ended their game against Spring Hill College with a loss of 1-4. 

Later that day, the team went on to compete against the University of Louisiana-Monroe and lost all five sets. 

On March 7, the team went on to play against two of its conference rivals, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and UNO. The team lost both games 0-5.
