About St. Norbert College Women’s Volleyball

Our women’s volleyball program began in 1974. Since that time, the Green Knights have won 16 conference titles, including 12 in the Midwest Conference. We have appeared in seven NCAA Division III tournaments, advancing to the Sweet 16 in 1993. 

We play our home games on campus at Schuldes Sports Center, which opened in 1979. The Green Knights previously played at Van Dyke Gym, which is still in existence in the Vanden Heuvel Campus Center.
