THE COUNTDOWN - #6 (tie)

#6 (Tie) – Coach Sanders named NCCAA II Volleyball Coach of the Year

Head Volleyball Coach Lauren Sanders was recognized by the NCCAA Division II Women’s Volleyball Coaches as their National Coach of the Year.  Coach Sanders led MCC to a 31-13 record, an undefeated Regular Season Midwest Christian College Conference (MCCC) Championship, the MCCC Tournament Championship, the NCCAA Central Region Championship and a seventh place finish at the NCCAA Tournament.

Coach Sanders has been in charge of the Lady Crusader volleyball program since 2005 and in that time she has directed her team to the NCCAA National Tournament six times, winning the Regional Championship four times.  One of the highlights from this year for Coach Sanders was winning her 200th match against Grace University during the Regional Tournament.

Coach Sanders’ goal is “Reaching for Excellence.” She plans to continue to work to build a strong, competitive program that will always be reaching for excellence, on and off the court.  Congratulations to Coach Sanders on her outstanding accomplishment and we look forward to seeing what this year’s squad with six returners will be able to do!
