ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Sept. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA, an official partner of the NCAA®, announced that its fifth episode of The Rivalries, a docu-series that offers a behind-the-scenes look into college sports' lesser known but no less intense rivalries, will feature St. Mary's University (San Antonio, Texas) and St. Edwards University (Austin, Texas).

A rivalry that stems over 50 years in volleyball, the Hilltoppers and Rattlers meet annually in the Battle of the Saints. Now members of the NCAA DII Lone Star Conference, the teams compete in a yearly head-to-head battle, earning a point for each win in all sports. At the end of the year, the institution with the most points wins­­ ? bringing this rivalry to the next level. The St. Edward's Hilltoppers are led by Stefanie Holler who began her first season as head coach in 2018. She has since led the team to the penultimate Heartland Conference Championship match which was won by St. Mary's in 2017. Eager to make her mark, St. Mary's Rattlers head coach, Laura Ulrich, is in her sophomore season as the 11th coach in the university's history. This week fans and friends can cheer on the two schools as they meet for this highly anticipated matchup.
