“We can expect another history making season from the Lady Toppers next year.” 
 
These were the words that closed the Trumpet’s recap for the West Liberty women’s volleyball team after 2016’s 23-win season and MEC Tournament semifinal appearance. After this season’s 20-14, 9-7 MEC season, and an MEC Tournament Finals appearance, and near victory over the Atlantic Region powerhouse Wheeling Jesuit, it is safe to say that the Lady Toppers have not only met those expectations, but have exceeded them in every way.
