Biographical/Historical Note

Georgia Tech first fielded a women's volleyball team in 1980. Three coaches led the team from 1980 to 1984, including David Hauser (1980-1981), Mary Ann Ingram (1982-1983), and Terry Chambers (1984). Judy Sackfield took over in 1985 and coached the team until 1990.

Sackfield's successor, Shelton Collier, began his 11-year term as volleyball coach in 1991. During Collier's tenure, the team began to enjoy considerable success, finishing the season as ACC regular-season champions in 1994, 1995, and 2000; ACC tournament champions in 1995; and NCAA tournament appearances in 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000, and 2001. The team continued its success under Bond Shymansky, volleyball coach from 2002 to 2008: The team became either ACC regular-season or tournament champions from 2002 through 2004, and they appeared in the NCAA tournament each of those years.

At the time of writing (February 2012), Tonya Johnson is in her third season as head volleyball coach.
