Coach Roberts Nets 400th Victory


September 24, 1998--Grove City College head women's volleyball coach Susan Roberts hit another milestone Thursday night, winning her 400th career match in a 3-0 sweep at Thiel College in Greenville, PA.

Roberts becomes just the 13th NCAA Division III coach to claim 400 lifetime victories.   With a 16-year ledger of 400 wins and 192 losses, Roberts' .676 career winning percentage ranks 23rd among active Division III coaches.  The Ontario, Ohio native is in her 14th season as head coach of the Lady Wolverines.  She coached for two years at King College (52-24) in Tennessee before coming to Grove City (348-168) in 1985.   Roberts was named Division III Coach of the Year in '85 after leading her first Lady Wolverine squad to 41 consecutive victories.  Since then, she has collected seven PAC titles and two ECAC crowns.

Senior Liz Sparks (Grove City, PA/Grove City) recorded eight kills and seven blocks in the 15-5, 15-1, 15-8 victory.

The Lady Wolverines (12-4, 1-0 PAC) host Waynesburg next Tuesday, September 29, at 6:00 p.m.
