About the WVIAC Founded in 1924, the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) rates as one of the oldest leagues at the small-college level. The league's 15 member schools include: Alderson- Broaddus College, Bluefield State College, University of Charleston, Concord University, Davis & Elkins College, Fairmont State University, Glenville State College, Ohio Valley University, Shepherd University, West Liberty University, West Virginia State University, West Virginia Wesleyan College and Wheeling Jesuit University. The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and Seton Hill University joined the WVIAC for the 2006-07 season. Pitt Johnstown and Seton Hill are the WVIAC’s first out-of-state members since 1932. The WVIAC moved into the NCAA Division II ranks in 1994 after a long affiliation with the NAIA. The conference was the only one in Division II to place a team in the national quarterfinals in men’s basketball, football and baseball during the 1998-99 academic year. In 2002 the WVIAC, along with two other conferences, became the first league to earn four bids to the NCAA Division II Men’s Basketball Championship. Commissioner Barry Blizzard, who has held the post since 1987, led the move into the NCAA. Blizzard, a native of Bramwell, West Virginia, previously served as the athletics director at Bluefield State. The long-time conference chief has served in a variety of national leadership positions, including a stint as president of the Division II Conference Commissioners’ Association. He is currently the chairman of the NCAA Division II Nominating Committee. Alumni of conference members include West Virginia State’s Earl Lloyd (the first African-American to play in the National Basketball Association), Pitt Johnstown's John Murtha (former US representative), and Wheeling Jesuit’s John Beilein (current Michigan men’s basketball coach). The conference’s basketball tournament is one of the longest-running events in collegiate hoops; the 74th annual event was held earlier this year at the Charleston Civic Center. Attendance at the WVIAC tournament ranks among the highest in Division II. The conference also boasts a 10-station radio network for the tournament.


Women’s sports were incorporated into the WVIAC during the 1981-82 academic year as the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Association was absorbed. Currently, women’s championships are offered in softball, golf, tennis, track, basketball, volleyball, cross country and soccer. Men’s championships are conducted in football, cross country, soccer, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis and track.

The league was recognized by the State Journal as one of “55 Great Things About West Virginia” in the magazine’s April 2007 edition. The WVIAC is headquartered in Princeton, WV

Head Coach: Larry Hill

One of the most successful and consistent coaches in volleyball, head coach Larry Hill begins his 28th season at the helm of the Fairmont State volleyball program. He ranks ninth in NCAA Division II for victories among active head coaches with a mark of 559-446 – more than any other coach in the WVIAC. The Falcons have had 18 winning times under Hill‟s leadership. Coach Hill has led the Fairmont State program since 1984, and has been named WVIAC “Coach of the Year” four times (1985, 1988, 1990 and 1998), and has led the Fighting Falcons to a winning season 17 times. Coach Hill has also directed Fairmont State to at least 20 victories in 15 seasons, including a record 42 wins in 1990. He has guided the Fighting Falcons to four WVIAC titles (1998, 1990, 1998 and 1999), and has produced three conference “Players of the Year” in Jackie Burks (1988), Tracey Rowe (1989) and Courtney Fochtman (1994). Fochtman and Theresa Haggerty are members of the Fairmont State Athletic Hall of Fame. Last season, the Falcons notched their 16th, 20-win season under Hill after posting a 20-10 record and a runner-up finish in the WVIAC. The Falcons also had a pair of first team All-WVIAC honorees. Hill is married to the former Joyce Lynn Antolini.

Assistant Coach: Camilo Guerci

Camilo Guerci is in his first season as a graduate assistant for the Fairmont State volleyball team. Guerci comes to Fairmont State after a successful career as a player at Mount Olive. A four-year starter for the Trojans, Guerci served as team captain for a squad that posted a 17-4 record and won a conference championship during his senior season. That year, Guerci was second in the nation in hitting percentage (.484) and 14th in the country in blocks per game. Upon graduation, Guerci coached club volleyball in North Carolina and Cincinnati before arriving at Fairmont State. A native of Miami, Fla., Guerci played high school volleyball at Christopher Columbus. There, he was a first-team all-county honoree and helped the Explorers to its first-ever district and regional championship, as well as the school's first-ever appearance in the state tournament.

Assistant Coach: Theresa Zapach

After a successful career for the Falcons, Theresa Zapach has joined the Fairmont State coaching staff. Zapach was a first team All-WVIAC selection in her senior season with the Falcons after ranking among the league leaders in total blocks last season with 138. She was a regular starter in the middle for FSU as a junior and led the team with 97 blocks while adding 162 kills. A Fairmont, W.Va., native, Zapach starred at East Fairmont High School. She was a two-time All-NCAC player for the Bees and earned all-state honorable mention as a senior after posting 237 kills and 69 blocks. She also was a standout in basketball earning all-state honorable mention honors during her senior season after helping lead East Fairmont to just its second state tournament appearance in school history.
