Happy New Year from Swat volleyball!

2016 was a great year for our program, and we're looking forward to all of the exciting opportunities that 2017 will bring!

Congratulations to Sarah Wallace!

The Junior was named to the Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area team! Way to go!

End-of-Season Banquet Recap

We celebrated our season with a banquet at Iron Hill in Media. We had a great time giving awards, gag gifts, and wrapping up a great season.

Congrats to Co-MVP's Sarah Girard and Sarah Wallace! Emma Morgan-Bennet was voted Most Improved Player, Malia Scott was named the Unsung Garnet for the season, and Olivia Leventhal was voted the Spring Captain for this year. Congratulations to all!

Swarthmore Volleyball Featured in Winter Bulletin

The Swarthmore volleyball team was represented not once, but three times in this winter's Swarthmore College Bulletin!

Athletic and Academic Excellence

Our team was featured in the bulletin for our accomplishments both on the court and in the classroom. We were recognized for having the winningest season in program history, as well as having every eligible athlete earn a spot on the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll.

Olivia Leventhal: Mlangarini for Life

Olivia Leventhal's work in the Tanzanian town of Mlangarini was also featured in the Swarthmore College Bulletin. For over 5 years, Olivia has been raising money and working to improve educational opportunities for children in this town. Congratulations on your amazing work, Olivia, we are so proud of you!
