Keeping up with the Olivet Nazarene University volleyball program is difficult for other schools.
Olivet is the only school from its five-state region — Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin — to advance to the NAIA National Championship tournament in at least five of the last six seasons. The Tigers have also claimed 10 conference titles and eight conference tournament championships since 2000, and have earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award every year since 2002.
The Tigers' success comes from leadership at the top. Veteran head coach Brenda Williams has amassed 796 career victories, the fifth-highest total among active NAIA coaches.
