Jamie Ivers; 2016-17 Academic Year - PCAC Female Coach of the Year!

Congratulations to Coach Jamie Ivers for receiving the honor of being named the 2016-2017 Pacific Coast Conference Female Coach of the Year.  Coach Ivers also received individual sport recognition when she was named 2016 Women's Indoor Coach of the Year.  "The greatest compliment I can possible ever give to a coach is to say hey you finished #3 in the state in two sports and Grossmont Women's Volleyball is the only program to accomplish that this season and you have been named the Female Coach of the Year for our Conference, ah no big deal or surprise." - Associate Dean of Athletics, Thomas Armstrong comments.  Grossmont College just won it's 1st ever title in the sport of baseball and the badminton team won their 1st individual and doubles titles as well.  It is only because of these 1sts that the greatness of the Women's Volleyball team doing what it does year after year has been overshadowed.  The Women's Indoor team entered the play-offs with the best regular season record in the state at 24-1 overall and undefeated in PCAC Conference play.  The ladies hosted Riverside Community College in the 1st round regional play-offs and then Long Beach City College in the 2nd round regional play-offs before advancing onto the State Finals at Los Angeles Pierce Community College.  The indoor team was dominate as they finished 3rd in the state and handed Coach Ivers her 7th straight PCAC Indoor Conference Championship.  The Griffins just finished their 3rd consecutive undefeated Conference season and are on a current 44 game PCAC winning streak.  Ivers jumped right from one state championship final into another one when her ladies took off their shoes and walked onto the sand courts.  The defending 2016 State Champions finished the season 23-6-1 and won the Orange Empire Regional to advance onto the State Finals. Grossmont was the only volleyball program in the state for whom finished the season in the State Finals in both indoor and beach this year.  "I think we are hands down the best women's volleyball program in the state and the truth is we have been so good for so long that we are no longer surprised when we finish in the state finals, it is expected with this program and this coach." Associate Dean of Athletics, Thomas Armstrong.
