Volleyball ties win record with 12
|Senior outside hitter Stephanie Journeay ended her Transy career with 1,003 kills.|
A strong finish helped the volleyball team tie the program’s record for wins in a season while playing perhaps its toughest schedule ever.
Under head coach Cindy Jacobelli, the Pioneers were 12-16 for a 43 percent winning percentage, best in the young program’s history. Twenty-three of those matches were on the road, including three invitational tournaments. Transy was 1-7 in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play.
Transy saved its best for last as it won five of its final seven matches. Three of those were decisive wins in the Sewanee Invitational, against host Sewanee–University of the South (3-0), Huntingdon College (3-1), and LaGrange College (3-0) to capture the tourney title.
“I was very proud of the way we finished the year,” Jacobelli said. “The schedule this year was a lot tougher, and we lost to some top-notch opponents, but we came back and really ended well.”
Three seniors completed their Transy careers with all-time school records. Outside hitter Stephanie Journeay finished with 1,003 kills, defensive specialist Ashley Koch had 1,463 digs, and setter Allyson Fisher totaled 2,600 assists.
