The first Lady Mustang varsity volleyball team took to the court in 2002 under the direction of Denison Sager. This will be the 15th season of playing the game of bump-set-spike, and will be coached this season by Coach Matt Evens.

The team has been one of the top four teams at tournament for each of the last nine years. They played in the MAUC Championship game in the 2007, 2008, and 2015 seasons, bringing home the first place trophy in 2007.
