The 2019 Augusta University volleyball team might have had the greatest season in team history last year and now they have the hardware to prove it. The university held a ceremony for the Jaguars on Oct. 16 where the team received their official championship rings after a dominating performance all last year.
The volleyball squad went further than any other team in program history in 2019, winning 29 matches on the year, capturing a second straight Peach Belt Conference Tournament Title, and advancing to the Sweet 16 for the first time ever.
Augusta University President, Brooks A. Keel, PhD, threw a celebration for the team and coaching staff in Christenberry Fieldhouse on the Forest Hills Campus. Each player was presented with a championship ring while enjoying a meet and greet.
“The 2019 Augusta volleyball team represented Augusta University well both on the court and in the classroom,” Keel said. “They had an unbelievable season and we are so incredibly proud of their success.”
