1978 - Team posts 10-8 record to begin a run of consecutive winning seasons.

1980 - Maria Smith becomes Rollins' first scholarship athlete as the team returns to AIAW competition.  That same year, Rollins records one of its most successful and memorable seasons in Rollins history.  The Tars won the Florida AIAW State Championship, along with the Southeastern AIAW Regional title.  Unfortunately, the school could not afford to send the team to the national championship in Spokane, Wash., thus denying them the opportunity to make their first national tournament appearance.

1981 - Rollins returns to the NCAA Division II level and volleyball becomes a member of the Sunshine State Conference.

1987 - The Tars reach 30 victories in a season for the first time with a 32-10 record in Jarnigan's final season as head coach.  She concluded her tenure at Rollins with a 210-150 (.583) mark (not including the seven in which records were not kept).

1988 - Former Rollins player Suzanne Patterson named head volleyball coach and leads team to a 28-12 record in first season.

1989 - Patterson leads squad to a school record 34 wins, which still stands today.

1991 - Rollins finishes 26-9 in Patterson's final season at Rollins and concludes her run with the Tars with a 110-49 record.

1992-93 - Mark Headrick named program's third head coach and compiles 39-28 record in two seasons at Rollins.

1994 - Sandra Carter takes over volleyball program and posts 21-15 season.

1995 - Tars post a 26-9 record and earn the program's first-ever appearances in the NCAA Division II Tournament.  Rollins gets out of first round with 3-2 victory over North Florida, but fall to eventual national champion Barry (3-0).

1996-00 - The volleyball program experienced five straight losing seasons before handing the program over to Sindee Snow. 

2001 - After combining for only 14 wins in the previous two years, Snow's first-year team was able to accumulate 15 wins.

2002-04 - The Tars finished in fourth place each season, behind the likes of 3-time national champion Barry, 21-time SSC champion Tampa and 7-time SSC champion Florida Southern.

2005 - Rollins posts a 25-11 record and earns a berth into the NCAA Division II South Region Tournament.  The Tars fell in four to Barry in the first round and was the third time under Snow's reign the team record 20 or more wins.  It was also the first time that her team posted back-to-back seasons with 20 or more wins. 

2006-09 - The following four seasons, the Tars struggled as they barely finished above .500 each of the four seasons, other than in 2009 when Rollins finished with a 15-20 record.

2010 - Rollins turned things around for the program with the help of All-American and Division I transfer Sarah Mendoza.  Mendoza became the program's first All-American as she led the Tars to a 22-10 record.  The Tars also earned their first postseason bid in five years.  Rollins made it to the second round of the NCAA Division II South Region Tournament as they defeated SSC-foe Florida Southern (3-2) in the first round but fell to West Florida in the second round, 3-0.  Highlighting the season was a straight sets victory over No. 1 Tampa at Warden Arena.

2011 - The Tars posted their second straight season of 20 or more wins as Rollins earned their second straight postseason bid to the NCAA Division II South Region Tournament.  In that trek, Rollins scheduled 25 regular-season road matches and only eight home contests.  With the loss of Sarah Mendoza, the Tars relied heavily on sophomore Megan Hodges.  Rollins finished third in the Sunshine State Conference, the highest finish in program history.  The Tars also earned their highest national ranking of 18 in the opening week of competition as they downed the eighth-ranked Grand Valley State Lakers.  Senior Phoebe Corder became the program's all-time digs leader at the AASU South/Southeast Challenge, surpassing Kim Kline, and also reached the 2,000th career digs plateau in the midst of the Tars' 11-match win streak.   Head coach Sindee Snow also reached a career milestone as she captured her 200th career win against Saint Leo at Warden Arena.  At season's end, Megan Hodges became the program's second-ever All-American.

2012 - Rollins saw another successful season earning their third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.  The Tars finished 18-15 with a 9-7 mark in the Sunshine State Conference.  Outside hitter Megan Hodges came back from an early-season injury to became a two-time All-American while Camille Indest was a first-time recipient of the award.  Indest was also the Tars' second-ever Sports Import/AVCA National Player of the Week.  She led the Tars to a pair of conference wins, hitting .458 and averaging 3.71 kills, 1.0 blocks, 0.9 digs and 0.3 service aces per set.  The duo of Hodges and Indest earned multiple awards, earning Daktronics All-South Region, All-SSC and AVCA All-South Region accolades.
