Coach Persico was recently honored at halftime of a game at MSG for achieving 500 wins in her coaching career. While volleyball isn't discussed very much on this site, I thought this was worthy of mention.

Congrats Coach Persico on achieving this milestone in your career
I hope that you continue to do us proud for many years to come

She is a really nice and great person. What I found out is that trips to post season tournaments are not funded by the AD budget and they must raise their own funds. Consider writing a check to the volleyball team to help support them and in her honor, whether it be 500 nickels, dimes, quarters, or dollars.

Wow...that's disappointing to know that's not covered, especially when donations made to athletic departments didcretion for most pressing needs. I would think post season tournaments would be university covered.

I remember when she started the program in mid 90's and recall her coming in to talk with Coach Joe Russo frequently. She was very upbeat and energetic as I recall.

Had a rare opportunity to be in NYC for the basketball game Saturday. Coach Persico was sitting a section over, so I had a chance to go over after the game and congratulate her on the milestone. Seems like a nice woman and obviously a successful coach.
