The King's College women’s volleyball team, started as a club team in 2010, is now in its second year as a varsity program competing in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) and National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCAA). For the Fall of 2013, The King's College Lady Lions, as well as all of our varsity teams, are the newest members of the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC).
The team got off to a slow start and was a single win short of qualifying for the HVIAC Conference playoffs. But they ended strong, winning six of their last nine matches including their last four in a row. In those last six victories they won by a combined 18-0 sets. Sophomore Kelli O'Donnell was selected for the USCAA Academic All-American Team and sophomore Alexandra Rollis earned First Team All HVIAC honors. Hannah Eckart received Player of the Week recognition during the season.
They are a group of women dedicated to the team and excellence of every kind, and strive to serve the Lord in the classroom as well as on the field.

Tiffany Firebaugh grew up in Dallas where she played volleyball for the number one club in Texas (TAV) and earned a spot as a four-year varsity starter and three year MVP on her high school team. She was selected for the All-State team twice and awarded Offensive Player of the Year during her senior season. While playing club volleyball, her teams qualified for Nationals and during her senior year, she and her teammates won a bronze medal at the Junior Olympics. She was recruited to play Division 1 volleyball at Columbia University but her opportunity there was cut short by a disappointing career-ending injury a couple of weeks into her freshman year. Prior to coaching at The King's College, Tiffany has coached at Prince of Peace Christian School, TAV, The Brearley School, NYC Juniors, and Harlem Success Academy. She has seven years of experience coaching teams, camps, clinics and private lessons for various age and skill levels. Tiffany is excited to join The King's College family.
