Grace Scott awarded Volleyball Coach of the Year
The King’s University is proud to extend congratulations to Grace Scott, Director of Athletics, for being selected by her ACAC coaching peers as the 2017-18 ACAC Women’s Volleyball Coach of the Year for the North Division.
This prestigious award was presented to Scott at the 2018 ACAC Women’s Volleyball Provincial Championships Banquet at the University of Alberta-Augustana Campus. It is Scott’s third time receiving this award (2006-07, 2014-15, 2017-18). During her 10 years as head coach of Eagles Volleyball, Scott has led her team to five consecutive provincial secured standings with a win/loss record of 15-5, 17-7, 21-3, 21-3, and 17-7. Throughout the 2017-18 season, the Eagles have consistently held a top 15 national ranking since November.
“We are very proud of our Athletics program at King’s and the leadership that Scott has provided as both Athletic Director and Women’s Volleyball Coach,” said VP Student Life Dr. Michael Ferber. “We especially appreciate the emphasis Scott brings to developing not only high caliber athletes, but also women who are encouraged to become lifelong learners and future leaders.”
With the exception of four players, this year’s team is comprised of 13 first and second-year student-athletes. Refusing to have anyone refer to this season as a building year, Scott and her team had their sights on being one of the top teams in the conference since day one. The King’s Eagles completed league play in second place in the north division.
