The 2020–21 Weber State Volleyball team is one for the history books.
With a 19–2 record in their unprecedented spring season, the Wildcats won their first-ever Big Sky Conference regular season title and advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1988.
At the tournament, the team made history again, winning its first tournament match 3–1 against Bowling Green. The Wildcats fought hard, but lost in the second round to the No. 1 Wisconsin Badgers.
“I'm so proud of our team and what they have accomplished this season through all the things that were thrown at them,” head coach Jeremiah Larsen said. “We had a vision and a plan to build this program and build a culture of success and we were able to accomplish many goals this season.”
Larsen was named the Big Sky Coach of the Year for the 2021 spring season, becoming the third Weber State coach to earn the honor in the program’s 47 years.
Senior Rylin Adams earned multiple honors this season, becoming the first Wildcat women’s volleyball student-athlete to be named to the Spring 2021 AVCA Division I Honorable Mention All-America list. She was also named the Big Sky Conference MVP for the season, Big Sky All-Conference Tournament Team, and AVCA Pacific North All-Region.
Adams and three other Wildcats – Dani Nay, Sam Schiess and Ashlyn Power – were also named to the Big Sky All-Conference First Team.
