Purdue Boilermakers Women's Volleyball TicketsThe Purdue Boilermakers volleyball team has collected numerous AIAW and NCAA tournament appearances over the years: 22 to be exact. The Boilermakers have also won three NCAA Big Ten championships back in the 1980s. In the 1990s and early 2000s, the team suffered a 10-plus year absence from NCAA tournament play but got back on track in 2004 when they made it to the NCAA second round. Since that year, the Boilermakers have only missed two years of tournament appearances. Equally impressive as their post-hiatus tournament record is the list of recent alumni and current star players on the Boilermakers' roster, including Grace Cleveland, who was a sophomore in 2019. As a freshman, Cleveland posted 10-plus kills over the course of 13 games, including 19 of them while playing Iowa. Blake Mohler, a senior in 2019, earned a sixth-place Big Ten ranking, thanks to her impressive hitting record that consisted of 316 kills and 623 attacks.
