"This group of sophomores has been amazing to work with the last 2 years. They have accumulated 30 wins and broken numerous records such as team digs per set, team hitting percentage, and Rilee broke the single match hitting percentage record. This group came in the door as first year players with no sophomore leadership and now exemplify what it means to lead on and off the court. All 9 of these sophomores have earned All-Conference Academic honors and set the standard to be a student-athlete. This program will miss your leadership, dedication and entertaining personalities. I know great things lie ahead for these Cyclones. Remember, once a Cyclone, always a Cyclone! I love you all and will miss you greatly!" -Coach Heidi Smith
