An NCAA Division III regional appearance in women’s volleyball and Berry’s best football season to date highlighted a strong fall semester for the college’s intercollegiate athletics program. Berry is currently second overall (first in the men’s standings) in the race for the Southern Athletic Association’s Presidents’ Trophy, recognizing excellence across all sports.

The women’s volleyball team enjoyed a banner season under eighth-year coach Mika Robinson, posting a 25-8 overall record and hosting an NCAA regional for the first time in program history. The Vikings advanced to the second round before losing in five sets to SAA rival Hendrix, an eventual national semifinalist. Robinson’s club was led by junior Jessica Gum and senior Katie O’Rourke, both honorable-mention All-America selections by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

The football team also challenged for an NCAA playoff berth, battling into the final week of the regular season before falling just short of the automatic bid awarded to the SAA champion. Still, the Vikings finished with a 7-3 overall record that included a 4-1 mark at Valhalla, Berry’s new on-campus stadium for football, lacrosse, and track and field.

Other fall highlights included second-place conference finishes in men’s and women’s cross country and winning seasons in men’s and women’s soccer. Two members of the women’s soccer team, junior Maggie Midkiff and senior Becca Proschansky, were named Capital One Academic All-Americans by the College Sports Information Directors of America for their combined achievements on the playing field and in the classroom.
