The Concordia-St Paul Golden Bears Volleyball team is looking to continue one of the longest Championship runs of any NCAA team in any sport nationwide.

Having already logged six consecutive NCAA Division III Championships, the Bears are in Cedar Rapids, Iowa chasing a seventh this weekend.

Click the video box on this page to hear Coach Brady Starkey and senior captain Kayla Koenecke discuss the thrill of chasing "Seventh Heaven" this weekend, as well as their successes of the past, and a path to the title which has already gone through the nation's #2-ranked team - and now through the nation's #1 team in their Elite Eight opener.

The Golden Bears won their NCAA Regional last weekend by defeating host and then-2nd-ranked Minnesota-Duluth.

They open the Elite Eight in Cedar Rapids with a rematch of last year's championship match, taking on current #1 University of Tampa.

The Bears match against Tampa will stream here:

The match begins at 5pm CT on Thursday afternoon.

Should they advance, subsequent Final Four and National Championship games will be streamed on
