Jill Stinson

Jill Stinson left a legacy of success that may never be matched. Under her leadership of 11 seasons, JCCC won five conference titles, four Region VI championships, posted four top-10 national tournament finishes, including a national championship in 2005 and a runner-up finish in 2007. She compiled an overall record of 299-120-1, and her .713 winning percentage is the best in team history.

Just as impressive was her career mark in Kansas Jayhawk Conference play, posting a 111-16 (.875) record in her 11 seasons, including a 9-0 record in 2003 and 2007 and back-to-back 8-1 marks in 2004 and 2005.

Individual honors poured in on her players as well. In all, Stinson coached 53 all-conference performers, 35 all-region/district performers, 10 NJCAA All-Americans and three AVCA All-Americans. She also had five individuals selected to the NJCAA All-Tournament team at nationals, including the Tournament MVP in 2005. In addition, Stinson had 15 of her student-athletes garner NJCAA Academic All-American, by far the most of any coach in JCCC history.

Stinson also earned many coaching awards during her career, but the pinnacle honor was bestowed on her in November 2006, when she earned induction to the NJCAA Volleyball Coaches Hall of Fame. Stinson also earned the Tachikara/AVCA Two-Year College National Coach of the Year and was the NJCAA Division II Coach of the Tournament in 2005. She also earned AVCA Midwest Region Co-Coach of the Year in 2007, District Coach of the Year honors in 2003 and 2006, and was the East Jayhawk Conference Coach of the Year in 1998.
