The 2019 season will mark the sixth season for coach Jonathan Scott at the helm of the Point Loma women’s volleyball program.
During his five seasons, PLNU has gone 80-64, including 63-37 in the PacWest. Scott led the Sea Lions’ volleyball program to its first-ever NCAA West Regional appearance in 2015, with an at-large berth and the No. 7 seed. He helped guide Heather Leavitt and Savannah Wedemeyer to AVCA All-America honors in both 2014 and 2015. Leavitt also captured the 2015 PacWest Player of the Year honors, marking the first time a Sea Lion in any sport has earned this honor.
Last season, under his tutelage, Cara Keturakis was named the PacWest Setter of the Year and Rachael Schlect was voted the PacWest Freshman of the Year. Keturakis ended up leading the PacWest in total assists and is now in the top 10 in PacWest history. Schlect earned four PacWest Freshman of the Week honors throughout the season and finished third in the conference with 3.25 kills per set.
