The UW-Stevens Point volleyball team enters the fourth year under the guidance of head coach Abbey Sutherland. Twice a national semifinalist, Sutherland will rely on her senior class to lead a 2016 club that is deep at every position. “We have four seniors this season,” stated Sutherland. “We will be leaning on that experience and look to those four to lead this team. We are also looking forward to watching our 11 newcomers push our returners to raise their level of play. It’s been a really fun preseason.” One of those seniors, Bri Piepenbrok, along with junior Kendra Kundinger will compete for playing time as Sutherland looks for a replacement for UWSP’s all-time digs leader, Hannah Picel. The experience and depth gives
Sutherland confidence on the defensive side. “We are very deep in the defensive position,” continued Sutherland. “The team is focused on defensive discipline and the junior and senior are leaders by example with their hustle. I feel that one of our strongest characteristics is our defense and passing.” At middle blocker, junior Ellen Drewry has two years of experience on the court and fellow junior Kelly Magliano has shown great progress in the preseason. Freshmen Maggie Kramer and Rachel Hein are making great progress as well. “Blocking-wise, it’s going to be a new challenge as Emma Brunkhorst was a very strong
blocker,” said Sutherland. “We hope to continually improve with blocking as the season progresses.” Sutherland has a great deal of depth at outside hitter with senior Marie Krengel, who has been training to make the move from a defensive specialist. Fellow senior Kelly Cefalu saw a lot of action a season ago and has the capacity to get kills when it matters. After battling injuries late last season, the team brought in a stable of outside hitting options. The versatility of the setter position gives Sutherland the flexibility to instill a number of offensive rotations. Sophomore Brittany Laffin has a year of experience as the primary setter. Junior Delaney McCreary has competed for a spot and has become a leader on
the team. With two freshmen entering the mix, Sutherland has a variety of options to her offensive strategy. Senior Gabby Thomas, a returning all-conference player, is standing out on the right side. She has really improved her all-around game and is expected to be solid in her final season. Junior Bella Nelson has also made a position change to right side this season and Sutherland is excited to see what she can do. “We are focusing on being stronger servers this year,” concluded Sutherland. “If we can serve and pass at a high level and get as many balls up as possible, we feel that we can play with anybody.”
Abbey Sutherland Head Coach Fourth Season Abbey Sutherland is in her fourth season as the head volleyball coach at UW-Stevens Point and has led the Pointers to back-to-back national semifinal appearances in her first two seasons. In three seasons, Sutherland has led the Pointers to a 95-19 overall record, two Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) regular season championships, two WIAC Tournament titles and a pair of runs to the Final Four. Last season, UWSP finished with a 27-9 record, and made its third consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. Under Sutherland’s guidance, three UW-Stevens Point players earned all-WIAC accolades. In 2014, UW-Stevens Point was 33-5 overall, including a 21-match winning streak prior to falling to Emory in four sets in the national semifinals. The Pointers won the St. Paul Regional with sweeps of the St. Benedict and Coe before edging Cornell (Iowa) 1511 in the fifth set to claim the regional championship for the second-straight season. At the NCAA Division III Championship in Newport News, Va., the Pointers claimed a thrilling five-set win over Claremont-Mudd-Scripps by a 16-14 score in the decisive fifth set. In Sutherland’s first season of 2013, UW-Stevens Point went on the deepest NCAA Tournament run in program history to date by advancing to the national semifinals. UWSP defeated three straight top-six teams to advance to the national semifinals, before falling to Cal Lutheran. In 2013, the Pointers compiled an overall record of 35-5 and the 35 wins were the most by a UWSP team since 1985. The team won 24 straight matches
prior to the loss to Cal Lutheran. In her two seasons, Sutherland has coached two-time WIAC Player of the Year Alexis Hartman, who was UWStevens Point’s first-ever conference player of the year and four-time All-WIAC pick. Hartman and Emma Brunkhorst have been named AllMidwest Region performers and AllAmericans by the American Volleyball Coaches Association in each of the last two seasons. Sutherland has also coached five First Team All-WIAC players, three honorable mention picks and two All-Defensive Team selections. Prior to coming to UWSP, Sutherland spent three seasons as head coach of the Division I University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles, compiling a 44-47 record. Prior to taking over the program in 2010, Sutherland spent six seasons as an assistant coach with the program, four as the team’s top assistant. Sutherland’s 2011 Golden Eagles had three student-athletes earn AllConference USA honors including first team selection and a first team all-region performer. The 2012 squad continued its academic excellence and earned its third consecutive team academic award from the AVCA and had a player earn Capital One Academic Second Team All-American accolades. In 2010, Sutherland guided Southern Miss to a 19-12 record and a fourthplace finish in Conference USA. Sutherland is one of only two firstyear head coaches in volleyball to record a winning season at Southern Miss. She placed two players on the all-conference first team.
Sutherland attended West Bend High School in West Bend, Wis., where she was a three-year letterwinner in volleyball. She was a first-team all-county selection, second-team all-conference and honorable-mention all-state. She received the Coaches’ and Hustle Awards. She played in the Wisconsin All-Star match and helped her team to three conference titles. The West Bend, Wis., native received her bachelor’s degree in Spanish and secondary education in 2004 from St. Norbert and a master’s degree in teaching languages, with a Spanish emphasis from Southern Mississippi in 2006.
