    Johnson-Lynch Takes Top Honor From Volleyball Magazine

    AMES, Iowa – Iowa State head coach Christy Johnson-Lynch has been honored as the 2009 Asics/Volleyball Magazine National Coach of the Year by the publication. Senior Kaylee Manns was named to the magazine’s All-America first team and junior Ashley Mass was a second-team selection.

    Johnson-Lynch, who is 105-58 in five years with the program, has orchestrated one of the most impressive turnarounds in volleyball history. In 2009, ISU won a school-record 27 matches and went 17-3 in Big 12 play to finish second in one of the nation’s toughest conferences. The Cyclones advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the third year in a row, making them one of just eight programs in the country to reach the third round in three consecutive seasons.

    Now that our volleyball program has shown an ability to have sustained success, can we keep her around??

    She signed an extension this year. I believe it was 5 years. She is an absolutely fantastic coach, and I'm really proud of how far this program has come.

    Great Great Honor! And a deserved one at that.

    Also a great opportunity to remind everyone of how special and dramatic the improvement the program has experienced under her leadership. Here is ISU's all-time BigXII records by season. Speaks for itself.

    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

    Open note to Pollard. Give her a lifetime contract and PAY her. Only stipulation is she can't leave to coach in Lincoln after Cook retires.

    Cook is pretty young, I doubt that he leaves any time soon. His daughter just transferred from UCLA to Nebby.
