Marquette Golden Eagles Women's Volleyball TicketsThe Marquette University Golden Eagles women's volleyball team has a long history of excellence on the court. The volleyball program got its start back in 1975 under Coach Tat Shiely, who was also head of the women's basketball team, the first Coordinator of Women's Athletics and a Hall of Famer herself at Marquette. Shiely, who led the team for 24 years, was instrumental in building the volleyball program into what it is today: a team that can book wins. Shiely led her team to numerous 20- and 30-win seasons. More recently, current head coach Ryan Theis is keeping the winning tradition alive. Since taking over from Coach Bond Shymansky in 2014, Theis has only had winning seasons with 20-win records each year. Additionally, Theis has gotten the Golden Eagles to postseason play every year, including both Big East Conference Tournaments and NCAA Tournaments.
