  • CIA Volleyball

    The 2011 campaign—the first for a varsity intercollegiate volleyball program at the college—ended with tremendous success, as the Steels became the first CIA team ever to win a conference championship in its inaugural season. Since then, the team has continued that success.

    Team Highlights:

    • 2011: An 11-1 record earned the number one seed and a first-round bye in the postseason tournament. Completed straight-game victories in both the semifinals and finals en route to the championship.
    • 2012: Rode a three-game winning streak to a #4 seed in the tournament, then advanced all the way to the championship match before settling for second place.
    • 2013: Posted an overall mark of 12-3, 5-2 in the conference, and advanced to the semifinal round of the conference tournament.
    • 2015: The team finished both the regular season and the HVIAC tournament as conference runner-up.
