Volleyball Head Coach Captures 200th Career Victory
It was no ordinary celebration following the volleyball team’s 3-0 win at Denison last fall. Not only did the Tigers put the finishing touches on another tremendous regular season and a perfect 16-0 North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) record, Head Coach Paco Labrador reached an individual milestone by capturing the 200th win of his career.
Labrador is in just his sixth year leading the Tigers, but in that time he has elevated the program into the upper echelon of NCAA Division III. Wittenberg has consistently ranked in the top five nationally in recent years as Labrador has guided the Tigers to a remarkable record of 203-27 at the conclusion of the 2008 season.
His winning percentage of .876 ranked No. 1 among active NCAA Division III women’s volleyball coaches with five or more years of experience going into the 2008 season. It improved to .885 as the Tigers went 33-3 overall and reached the NCAA Division III Tournament for the sixth straight time under his tutelage.
