Scope and Contents

Each of these annual publications, which are primarily intended as media guides and/or recruiting brochures, contains photos and profiles of the current team and coaches; reviews of the previous season and outlooks for the upcoming season; schedules for the coming season; team and individual statistics; information on the Tech volleyball facilities; media information; and background on Georgia Tech itself. One additional publication, the Georgia Tech Lady Jackets NCAA Volleyball Championship Guide for 1994, covers the team for the NCAA tournament of 1994.

History of the Volleyball Program at Tech

Georgia Tech first fielded a women's volleyball team in 1980. Three coaches led the team from 1980 to 1984, including David Hauser (1980-1981), Mary Ann Ingram (1982-1983), and Terry Chambers (1984). Judy Sackfield took over in 1985 and coached the team until 1990.

Sackfield's successor, Shelton Collier, began his 11-year term as volleyball coach in 1991. During Collier's tenure, the team began to enjoy considerable success, finishing the season as ACC regular-season champions in 1994, 1995, and 2000; ACC tournament champions in 1995; and NCAA tournament appearances in 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000, and 2001. The team continued its success under Bond Shymansky, volleyball coach from 2002 to 2008: The team became either ACC regular-season or tournament champions from 2002 through 2004, and they appeared in the NCAA tournament each of those years.

At the time of writing (February 2012), Tonya Johnson is in her third season as head volleyball coach.
