SEC to experiment with third official in women’s volleyball

The third referee will have the final decision to confirm or reverse the original ruling or determine if the review was inconclusive. The third referee will sit at the scorer’s table with direct and easy access to the challenge review system monitor.

The NCAA Women’s Volleyball Rules Committee wants to see if the addition of a third referee speeds up the review process and removes any perception of the second referee’s inability to overturn crew calls.
