Coach's Letter

Dear family, friends, and alumni,

The 2016 season proved to be another record-breaking campaign for our program:  We became the first team in the history of the MAAC to go a perfect 18-0 and cap it off by winning the conference championship by beating Quinnipiac 25-18, 25-15, 26-24. Along the way, we also had the nation' longest winning streak of 22 matches.  Our season concluded with a trip to the NCAA tournament and a first-round match at Michigan State.

I would like to thank all of you for your support throughout the season from near and far. Many of you were able to attend lots of the matches and for others, we still felt your support. Without it, we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish our ultimate goal as the season definitely showed some challenges at the beginning.

As we are well into our 2017 season, we hope you have a chance to catch a game this year. Mark your calendars for our First Volleyball Championship Weekend, taking place October 6 - October 7, 2017. We hope you and your families can join us.

Once again, we appreciate all that you have done for the program and we look forward to your continued support so we can make this upcoming season one of the best ever! 

Go Stags!

Todd Kress
