Sept. 26, 2002
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville University head volleyball coach Robin Mignerey was named to the Atlantic Coast Conference's 50th Anniversary Volleyball Team as announced by the league office. Mignerey, the former Robin Kibben, was one of seven players from Clemson to be named to the 53-member squad.
"It's an honor and a privilege to be in the company of such great players," Mignerey said. "When I look at the list of names and see the players I respected and was in awe of, to be recognized with them is very special."
Mignerey, whose career spanned from 1991-94, was Clemson's first three-time First-Team All-ACC selection and is the Tigers' record holder for kills in a single-match (32), season (602) and career (1,804). She still holds the ACC record for kills in a season with 602 in 1993 and led the Tigers in kills and block solos all four seasons. Mignerey, who had a Clemson record .327 career hitting percentage, led the ACC and ranked sixth in the nation with 5.02 kills per game in 1993 and also led the conference with 1.25 blocks per game as a freshman.
Mignerey was named to the 1994 ACC All-Tournament Team and earned AVCA All-South Region honors in 1993 and 1994. She also helped lead the Tigers to their first-ever NCAA Tournament victory in 1994.
The Lake Worth, Fla., native first came to JU as an assistant coach in 1997. After serving as an assistant for two seasons, Mignerey took over the reins of the program prior to the 2000 season. She has led JU to a winning record in conference play in each of her first two seasons, while the Dolphins' have set the school attacking percentage each of the last four years.
