The Georgia State Panthers sand volleyball team represents Georgia State University in the sport of sand volleyball. The Panthers compete in Division I of the AVCA governed championship independent of a conference. The Panthers play their home matches at the GSU Sand Volleyball Complex on the university's Atlanta, Georgia campus, and are currently led by head coach Beth Van Fleet.

History[edit]

With the emergence of football at Georgia State University, due to Title 9 scholarship restrictions, it was necessary for GSU to increase the amount of women's scholarships available in their athletic program[1]

The creation of sand volleyball at Georgia State was announced on September 27th, 2011, by Georgia State Athletic Director Cheryl Levick.[2] Construction of the GSU Sand Volleyball Complex, a 340 seat, 3 tiered court set, began in April of 2012, and was completed by September 2012. [3] [4]

Originally named as head coach of sand volleyball, head coach Tami Audia was elevated to Director of Volleyball, being replaced by assistant coach Beth Van Fleet in July 2013.[5]
