Miami, March 28, 2021 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Lady Sharks volleyball team has done it again! After defeating Florida Southwestern State College in three straight sets this weekend, the Lady Sharks won the state championship at the 2021 FCSAA State Volleyball Tournament. The team has 47 state wins and 11 national titles.
With this victory, the Lady Sharks advance to the NJCAA D1 Southeast District Volleyball Tournament on April 1, and then hopefully on to the NJCAA National Championship on April 15-17 in West Plains, Missouri.
Under the leadership of Coach Kiko Benoit, the Lady Sharks finished their last season third in the nation in 2019. Their 2020 season was moved to 2021 due to the pandemic. They finished second in the nation in 2018 and were back-to-back NJCAA National Champions in 2017 and 2016.
