State Representative Kyle Koehler (R-Springfield) yesterday honored the Wittenberg University volleyball team for its recent North Coast Athletic Conference championship title and for being runners-up in the NCAA championship tournament.

“The 2015 Wittenberg University women’s volleyball team was lead by six seniors and a talented mix of younger players who greatly contributed to the successful season. This accomplished program deserves to be recognized for its achievements. We are honored to do that today, and thank them for the impact they have made on Wittenberg University and our community in Clark County,” Representative Koehler said during House session.

Joined by Head Coach Paco Labrador, Assistant Coach Hallie Donathan, and other university community members, the Wittenberg University volleyball players were presented with a resolution in their honor during Ohio House session. The team finished their 2015 season with a 29-3 record and went on to place second in the NCAA Division III tournament, losing to California Lutheran University.

In addition to the team’s success on the court, the team demonstrated success in the classroom as well. The team compiled an impressive team grade point average of 3.47 and senior Kara Seidenstricker was recently named to the 2015 CoSIDA Academic All-America first team with a 3.9 GPA.

This was the second time the program has been recognized at the Statehouse for their success under head coach Labrador.
