 Princeton Women's Volleyball • Ten Fast Facts

1) Women's volleyball became a varsity sport in 1977, and its first match was a 3-0 victory over Kean College on Sept. 28.

2) Glenn Nelson won 580 matches as Princeton head coach (1982-2008), which is the most for any head coach of one team in University history. He broke Cindy Cohen's record of 559 on Nov. 10, 1997, when Princeton defeated Brown and clinched its 14th Ivy League championship.

3) Princeton's 14 Ivy League championships are more than any program in the league. The league title was decided in a conference tournament until 2001, when the current system of double round robin play was introduced.

4) Four women have been named Ivy League Player of the Year from Princeton: Kristi Hakman (1990), Kristin Spataro (1995), Sabrina King (1999), Parker Henritze (2007).

5) Sabrina King '01 won three Ivy League titles as an undergraduate (1997, 1999 and 2000), and two as Nelson's assistant coach (2004, 2007). On Feb. 11, 2011, she was named the fourth head coach in program history.

6) Kristi Hakman ’92 and Ayesha Attoh ’98 are two of only five players to achieve first-team All-Ivy honors four times since All-Ivy selections began in 1978. Of the 16 players to make the first team three times, five were Tigers: Janet Miller ’83 (1980-82), Michelle Williams ’84 (1981-83), Cindy Kendall ’86 (1983-85), Parker Henritze ’08 (2006-08) and Lindsey Ensign ’08 (2006-08).

7) The 2007 Princeton squad became the first in Ivy League history to go 14-0 in double round-robin play. That team had five All-Ivy honorees, including a trio on the first team (Lindsey Ensign, Parker Henritze and Bailey Robinson).

8) The 2013 team will return six starters from last season, including a trio of All-Ivy League honorees. Junior setter Ginny Willis is the only returning player to make two All-Ivy League teams; last season, she led the league in assists.

9) Sophomore Kendall Peterkin is the lone returning player who earned First Team honors last season. She ranked second in the league in points (3.7) and third in the league in kills (3.2) last season.

10) Princeton will open its 2013 schedule at the George Mason Tournament Sept. 6. While the early season will be filled with road matches, the Tigers will play six of their final nine Ivy League matches at Dillon Gym.

Junior Nicole Kincade has averaged more than one block per set throughout her career, and she ranked third on the team in kills in 2012. Senior Chelsea Parker has played more sets than any member of the Class of 2014 and could be a key offensive force this season.
Sophomore Kendall Peterkin was one of two freshmen to be named to the All-Ivy First Team last season, and ranked second in the league in kills. Junior Ginny Willis is a two-time All-Ivy League setter. She led the league in assists (10.6) last season by more than 1.3 over anybody in the Ivy.
