Women’s Volleyball Team Wins Seven Sisters Championship

Head women’s volleyball coach Jonathan Penn has had his share of memorable victories during his 12 seasons leading the team, but one win had always eluded him — until Sunday, October 11. With a 3-0 sweep over Wellesley in the championship of the Seven Sisters Tournament, Penn scored his first — and the program’s third — Seven Sisters title.

The Brewers (13-5) won the title in resounding fashion, sweeping Wellesley 25-20, 25-21, 25-15. It was Vassar’s first Seven Sisters Championship since 1993; the win avenged a five-set loss to Wellesley in the 2007 championship match.

Senior Sarah Potts (pictured) and freshman Hilary Koenigs were named to the All-Seven Sisters Tournament Team as a result of their outstanding play during the tournament.
