The University of Georgia played its first varsity season in 1978. Since the program's inception, Georgia has notched 18 seasons with 20 or more wins and produced arguably the Southeastern Conference's most prolific performer in Priscilla Pacheco.
Eight NCAA Tournament appearances highlight Georgia history, with two Sweet 16 showings. Led by setter Jenny McDowell, who spread out 5,667 assists during her time in red and black, the Bulldogs won an SEC Championship in 1985 and then repeated the feat in 1986. Georgia has also finished second in the league four times. Four All-Americans grace the Bulldogs' all-time roster. Georgia's only first-team selection, Pacheco, earned top recognition in 1993 and 1994. Pacheco also smashed the NCAA record for kills in a five-game match (53, since broken) and led the nation two straight years in kills per game. In addition, Pacheco has the most career kills (2,675) of any player who has ever taken the court in the SEC. Nikki Nicholson, a two-time second-team choice as well as an exceptional student, co-captained the 1995 squad. Shelly Gross, who holds the career digs record for the Bulldogs at 1,748, made third-team All-American in 1986.
Equally important, Georgia boasts three athletes who have earned Academic All-America honors: Jill Moore (1989-91), Jodi Kruse (1992, 93) and Nicholson (1993-95). Nicholson also was honored as the 1994 and 1995 GTE Academic All-American Athlete of the Year for volleyball. Kruse, Moore and Nicholson also distinguished themselves with postgraduate grants.
Georgia has placed at least one Bulldog on the All-SEC roster every year but four since 1981. Pacheco, Nicholson and powerful middle blocker Hadli Anstine were the first to earn such honors every year of their careers.
