The Hibbing Volleyball Team has been known for dominating the region since it’s beginning in 1969[1]. The same coach, Gail Nuchech, has also coached the girls. She has been coaching for over 40 years, and is the most winning coach in Minnesota with over 800 wins[2]. Those wins include a State title in 1975, the first Minnesota State tournament, State runner-up in 1998, 3rd at state in 1978, 1985, 1987, and 2008, 4th place at state in 2003, 2005, 2009, 5th at state in 1976, 1977, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1992, and 6th place in 1999 and 2007. She has also coached them to many Iron Range Conference Championships.[3] The Volleyball program has kept track of many records through out the years including most blocks in a match, most ace serves in a match just to name a few.[4] Along with the records they have kept track of the members of the teams who have been named All State, and also the ones who were named to the All Tournament Team.[5] Kate Lange, Paige Hardy and Shawna Varichak are a few named to the all tournament team in recent years. Playing for the Hibbing Volleyball Program has very beneficial to her volleyball career said Kate Lange; it helped her get to where she is today playing at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.[6] When asked about their favorite senior memory Morgan Anderson says “Playing Summer League”[7] and Nicole Baratto adds “The Jose’ song”[8]. Many memories have been created through the years because of the Hibbing Volleyball Program.[9] Along with playing fall season the young ladies in the Hibbing Volleyball Program also play Junior Olympic Volleyball in the spring through their junior year of high school.
