Northwestern Wildcats Women's Volleyball TicketsThe volleyball program at Northwestern dates back to 1976. The first head coach of the team was Mary Conway, who held the reins for three years and produced an overall record of 74-34. After her tenure was over, Jerry Angle took over and led the Wildcats for 15 years. His overall record with the team was an impressive 326-240-5. However, when Angle left, a series of coaches followed who managed to eke out a few winning seasons here and there. However, most of the seasons under these coaches were losing years. That being said, the program has recently been turning out exceptional athletes, such as Temi Thomas-Ailara. She was a freshman in 2019 and led the team in kills with 398. She was also named to the AVCA North All-Region Team. Get your Northwestern Wildcats women's volleyball tickets at StubHub today.
