The Concordia (St. Paul) volleyball team continues its quest for a sixth consecutive Division II national championship, which would tie the NCAA record for all divisions.

Today: National semifinals

Who: Golden Bears vs. BYU-Hawaii

When: 5 p.m.

Where: Pensacola, Fla.

Concordia (St. Paul), the five-time defending national champion, defeated Wingate (S.C.) 3-1 in the quarterfinals in the NCAA Division II volleyball tournament Thursday in Pensacola, Fla.

Concordia was led by seniors Cassie Haag with 15 kills and a .333 attack percentage and Ellie Duffy with 17 kills.

"Couldn't be more proud that we're moving on," Golden Bears coach Brady Starkey said on the team's website. "I thought we gutted out a performance against a team that was really scrappy. ... Our offense wasn't flowing as well as it normally does but we just scrapped it out."

Concordia now has won 34 consecutive NCAA tournament matches and has a overall record of 42-4 in 10 tournament appearances.

The top-ranked Golden Bears (31-4) will face No. 5 Brigham Young-Hawaii (25-3), which stopped West Texas A&M 3-0 in a semifinal match at 5 p.m. Friday at the University of West Florida.

Reeve has a .657 winning percentage (67-35) in three seasons, and was the league's coach of the year in 2011 when the Lynx won the WNBA title.

"We have a great thing going here in Minnesota -- great players, great staff and great fans -- and I'm very grateful to be in this situation," Reeve said in a statement.
