Since its first year of interscholastic competition in 1978 after forming a few years prior as a club sport, the volleyball program remains one of the most popular and successful athletic teams at Beaumont.
Under the leadership of Pat Royer, who spent 22 seasons at Beaumont before retiring after the 2022 season, the Blue Streaks made three consecutive trips to the state Final Four and won the state championship in the fall of 2012.
That was a historic first state title for the sport, joining cross country and track and field as the only teams to earn that distinction at Beaumont.
Numerous Beaumont volleyball alumnae have continued to play collegiately at NCAA institutions. Class of 2021 members Darby Leininger (University of Mount Union) and class Salutatorian Bella Peroni (Niagara University), as well as Alycen Radolovic ’22 (Gettysburg College), are among the latest to join that list.
Mandy Barney took over the Beaumont program prior to the 2023 season and was picked as the Crown Conference’s Co-Coach of the Year in her debut season after leading Beaumont to a 10-win improvement from 2022.
After advancing to the district final (Round of 32), four Blue Streaks received individual honors.
