A Message From Coach Goldberg

Coach Barry Goldberg talks with his team

Dear AU Volleyball Fan,

What a year it has been so far! Over the weekend, our team won our 15th Patriot League Volleyball Championship. It was our fifth straight title and our team played its best match of the year in the finals, sweeping Navy in straight sets. 

Over the tournament we had several awards given to our student-athletes, including our Player of the Year, Aleksandra Kazala, being named Tournament MVP. All-League selections included Vela McBride and Kennedy Etheridge. Both were also named to the PL Championship All-Tournament Team. Our attacker, Helena Elbaek, received second team All-Patriot League for the season and Kristen Largay, our Libero, was awarded Patriot League Libero of the Year. Banners continue to fly in Bender Arena!

With all of the success we have had over the years, we now look forward to continuing this season with the NCAA Tournament selections this coming weekend! 

Please join us on campus at the MGC Tavern, this Sunday, November 26, at 8:45 p.m. for the NCAA Selection Show, or watch on ESPNU. 

We need your help now more than ever! Your donations directly impact our student-athletes in so many ways, and I can't explain enough how important they are to our program. We hope that you make a gift today. I am asking everyone to please give back to our program! 

I want to personally thank everyone who has come out to support our team this season and to those who have made contributions. We could not have been so successful this year without your help.
