 "Of course at the beginning of the season I was aware where my wins were but didn't think too much of it," said Head Volleyball Coach Jill Williams. Coach Williams passed her 250th career win mark on sept. 29.

"When it happened I had no clue at all. I was scanning metro sports report one day to see what they were saying and saw an article on a certain coach Williams passing her 250th win milestone. I did not even acknowledge the fact that it was about me until I started getting congratulations and was informed I'd be honored before a upcoming home game," Williams said.

Fans packed Johnson Hall on Oct. 2 to see the 21-5 Eagles hopefully add another win to their record. Before the game there was a ceremony congratulating Williams on her milestone and dedication to the program and the students in her nine years here as head coach.

"I just can't help but look back at all of the great players and coaches who helped me get to 250. Without them I really couldn't have done any of it," said Williams.

When asked about the current team and their red-hot season, Coach Williams said, "This year's team is very similar to teams I've coached in the past years in the sense they know how to win. I am very glad at how they are keeping the winning traditions of Kirkwood volleyball alive and are aware of the past traditions."
