[MICRO]GRANTS: Women's Volleyball

The University of Scranton women’s volleyball team has been one of the university’s most successful athletics programs over the past 20 years. During that time, the Royals have averaged 21.9 victories per season, including a school-record 31 victories in 1994.

The Royals have captured five conference championships in their 37-year history, including 19 seasons of 20-or-more victories, most recently in 2012. Scranton has also qualified for the Landmark Conference playoffs in four of the six seasons since the conference was formed.

Since the Landmark Conference first started competition in the fall of 2007, 11 Scranton volleyball players have earned all-conference honors. In the Royals’ previous affiliation with the Middle Atlantic Conference, players earned all-conference accolades 64 times, including four MVP or player of the year honorees.

Scranton annually plays a schedule of approximately 30-35 matches, including six Landmark Conference. The Royals host the Scranton Invitational each September and played in tournaments in Pittsburgh and Chicago during the 2012 season.
