Hello from Iowa State Cyclone Volleyball!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website! I am very proud of what our team has accomplished in the last eight years and I can’t wait to see what's yet to come. The future looks very bright for Cyclone Volleyball!

In the classroom our players have done a great job. I am proud to say that every player who has completed their eligibility has graduated. Our players enjoy tremendous support by our Athletics Academic Services staff, which is housed in one of the newest buildings on campus.

On the court, we are coming off our fifth Sweet Sixteen appearance, just one of seven teams in the nation to advance to the Sweet Sixteen in five of the last six seasons. Cyclone Volleyball has been to the NCAA tournament the past seven seasons, advancing to the Elite Eight in both 2008 and 2011.  We compete in the Big 12 conference, which is considered one of the top conferences in the country every year. Also, our players benefit from one of the best environments in the country. Last season we drew over 2,500 fans a match, which ranked 11th best in the nation. In 2009, we had a record-setting 10,203 fans pouring into Hilton Coliseum for our match against Nebraska, which was the third-largest home court crowd in the country.

I hope that as you look at our website you realize what a great school Iowa State University is and what a great volleyball program we have! Thank you again for taking your time to look into our program and how it can meet your college needs.  I am confident that the more you learn about us the more excited you will be about Cyclone Volleyball.

Good luck in school and volleyball!  Be healthy and work hard! Do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any way.

Go Cyclones!
