George Mason women’s volleyball head coach Pat Kendrick has agreed to a contract which will keep her with the Patriots through the 2003 season.

Kendrick has been the head coach at George Mason for the past 16 seasons and has compiled an overall record of 301-228 with the Patriots. She led George Mason to a 17-10 record last fall, the top seed in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Volleyball Championships, and a berth in the tournament finals.

George Mason experienced its greatest success under Kendrick’s guidance in the mid-1990s. The Patriots won five consecutive CAA championships from 1992-96 and made four appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Kendrick has been named CAA Coach of the Year five times and Virginia Coach of the Year four times.

A 1982 graduate of George Mason with a degree in decision sciences, Kendrick was a two-sport star for the Patriots. In addition to playing on the women’s volleyball team, she was the university’s first conference champion in track and field, winning the Mason-Dixon Conference 100-meter hurdles in 1979. Kendrick was inducted into the George Mason Women’s Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1989.
