    Johnson-Lynch Named Big 12 Coach of the Year

    AMES, Iowa – Coming off its best regular season in school history, the Iowa State volleyball team earned a record seven postseason honors from the Big 12. The league office announced today that head coach Christy Johnson-Lynch has been named Big 12 Coach of the Year and Ashley Mass was named the libero of the year for the second season in a row. Mass was a unanimous selection by the league’s coaches as libero.

    Mass was also tabbed a First-Team All-Big 12, becoming the first libero in conference history to be named to the first team. The junior was a unanimous selection to the first team and was joined by teammates Kaylee Manns and Victoria Henson, who received the honor for the second time in their careers. Sophomore Rachel Hockaday picked up honorable mention honors and Jamie Straube was a unanimous selection to the all-freshman team.

    Johnson-Lynch, who is in her fifth year as head coach of the Cyclones, led ISU to a 25-4 overall record and a second-place finish in the Big 12, the best finish in school history. She set school records for wins in a season (25) and Big 12 victories (17). Iowa State also became the first team since 2003 to defeat both Texas and Nebraska in the same season. ISU’s win over Nebraska was the first in school history, snapping a skid of 76 matches to the Huskers.

    Yep. Nothing short of a miracle.

    Wonderful and humble person too. I bet she is a fun coach too.

    So proud of her, her hubby, and our VB team. Great representatives of the ISU family.

    Well done Christy! What a tremendous season, for a tremendous program.
    Hate to add that we will probably always be fending off schools for her.
    Wisconsin has headed into a downturn ever since BVD hired her away from there. Badger VB fans are already saying they want CJL back, this time as HC.

    I thought the Texas coach deserved it more.





    I kid. I kid. Hopefully this will be the year for ISU coaches getting Big 12 COY awards.

    No disrespect to Bill and what he has accomplished and sustained in the WBB program, but what Coach Johnson-Lynch has done with the VB program is a greater accomplishment. Nice discussion to have which coach has done a better job in building a program - no wrong answers only winners! Hopefully Christy can sustain the success and take it to the next level. I have a feeling she is only scratching the surface.

    Here are the conference results of ISU's VB team since the founding of the BigXII.

    96 3-17
    97 1-19
    98 1-19
    99 1-19
    00 0-20
    01 1-19
    02 1-19
    03 4-16
    04 1-19

    05 9-11
    06 12-8
    07 11-9
    08 11-9
    09 17-3

    Re: Johnson-Lynch Named Big 12 Coach of the Year

    Damn straight, I say. She absolutely deserved this. Go read that full press release- the list of end-of-season awards and honors for Iowa State just goes on and on and on.

    Can we please get this woman a lifetime contract already?


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Johnson-Lynch Named Big 12 Coach of the Year

    For comparison, ISU WBB conference records since WBB became a Big 8 sport through BF's first 6 years:

    83 3-9
    84 0-14
    85 3-11
    86 8-6
    87 2-12
    88 5-9
    89 6-8
    90 3-11
    91 6-7
    92 2-12
    93 1-13
    94 3-11
    95 1-13

    96 5-9
    97 9-7 (first year of Big 12)
    98 12-4
    99 12-4
    00 13-3
    01 12-4

    Not trying to derail this thread. CJL greatly deserves this accolade, and I really hope she's still here 15 years down the road.
