Sherry Dunbar to leave the Co

Two-time SoCon Coach of the Year, Coach Sherry Dunbar is leaving the College and returning to the Hoosier State to lead Indiana University's volleyball program. Coach Dunbar grew up in Indiana and was a record setting volleyball player for Ball State (Muncie, Indiana), which is part of the equation of why taking the Hoosiers’ job fits. With the network and support of her family back in Indiana, combined with her ability as a coach, there isn’t a doubt in my mind that Coach Dunbar will make the Hoosiers a force to reckon with on the volleyball court.

Coach Dunbar's tenure at the College produced the kind of stats and student/athletes to get her noticed by the big leagues; Dunbar’s record in 4 seasons at CofC is 113-22 (.837), with 4 SoCon (regular season) Titles, 3 SoCon Tournament titles, and 3 trips to the NCAA Tournament. Coach Dunbar's teams excelled off the court as well, winning the American Volleyball Coaches Assoc. Team Academic Award for three-straight seasons. Sadly, we will miss Coach Dunbar as she leaves the beach for green(er) pastures, but this is a once and a lifetime opportunity for her to make a difference and move to the next level.
