Knights earn back-to-back league titles

The Marian University men's track and field squad made it back-to-back championships after the Knights climbed from third after day one to earn the 2015 Crossroads League Men's Outdoor Track and Field championship at Goshen College on Saturday.

After the first day of events concluded, which saw the Knights bring home their second straight 4x800-meter relay title, MU sat in third behind leader Bethel (Ind.) and second-place Indiana Wesleyan.

Head coach Mike Holman, the 2015 Crossroads League Coach of the Year, stated that MU may have trouble repeating as champions due to what seemed to be a lack of depth in certain strategic positions. However, scoring the maximum of three athletes in five events and two in four to go with a sweep of all three relays seems to have proven that hypothesis incorrect. read more

Head Volleyball Coach Selected for AVCA 2014 Thirty Under 30 Award

by Katie Bradley | Mar 19, 2014

The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has named Ashlee Pritchard, Marian University head volleyball coach, a 2014 Thirty Under 30 award recipient for her passion and dedication to coaching.

“I want to be able to give back to the sport and help train young women in hopes that they will have the same love. But more importantly, a person can learn so much about life through athletics. The goal of any of my programs is that my athletes can take the lessons that they have learned on the court and apply them off the court, to be the best person they can be,” said Pritchard.   

This fall, Pritchard will enter her third season at Marian University. In her second season, Pritchard led the Knights to an 18-11 record.  Prior to coming to Marian University in 2012, she was the assistant volleyball coach at Taylor University (2009-12), where she also served as assistant director of athletics for event management.
