John Wesley University Annual Athletic Banquet

Our annual Athletic Banquet is scheduled for Friday, April 28, 2017, at 6:30 pm in the Student Center. Each coach will give awards out for Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Volleyball, and Softball.

Guest Speaker

Joe Sagula, one of the most successful coaches in college volleyball, completed his 27th season at Carolina in 2016. UNC’s winningest volleyball coach in history, Sagula has won seven ACC championships and led UNC to 14 of its 18 NCAA Tournament appearances.

The Tar Heels are 577-309 under Sagula, a .651 winning percentage. Sagula is 780-432 (.644) over a total of 36 years as a Division I head coach, with 11 regular-season and six conference tournament titles.

Sagula has the most ACC wins of any coach in history with 309, and his seven ACC titles ties for the most all-time among the league’s coaches.

Sagula has directed the Tar Heels to 14 top-three finishes in the league’s regular-season standings, including first-place finishes in 1998, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2014 and 2016. In the 14 seasons in which the ACC held a postseason tournament, Sagula led the Tar Heels to six appearances in the ACC championship match and reached the semifinals 10 times.
