Lancers Women's Volleyball Coaching Staff

HEAD COACH: Currently Vacant


The Lancers women's volleyball team each season faces several Top 25 state ranked teams, including South Coast Conference rivals in the likes of El Camino and Mt. San Antonio.

PCC's Hutto-Patterson Gymnasium was the host site of the CCCAA State Championship Tournament in 2008 after also being the host site in 1999 and 2001.

The PCC women's volleyball program has four inductees in the school's Sports Hall of Fame. Former Head Coach and student-athlete Lori Jepsen (1979-2002) entered the Hall in 2002, and All-State Tournament selection
Sarah Goodlaw (1995) entered the prestigious Hall in 2005. In 2016, Gina Punaro (1995) and Mary Morgan (1994-95), members of Jepsen's state third place finisher took spots in the HOF. Jepsen also was inducted into the CCCWVCA Hall of Fame in 2008.

In 1989-90, middle blocker Cynthia King was an All-Conference player and was class valedectorian.

Pasadena's most successful year in volleyball was the '95 season when the Lancers placed No. 3 at the State Championship Tournament. Pasadena also placed fifth in the state in 1987 and 1990.

Under head coach Tammy Silva (2007-2012), PCC won its first-ever South Coast Conference title in 2009. Then captured title No. 2 in 2012. Twice, the program reached the Regional Finals in 2010 and 2012. Silva's teams would have reached the state tournament in '10 and '12 under the previous 8-team state tournament format that was changed to a 4-team tourney the last past seven years due to cost containment. The state since has allowed for an 8-team state tourney again in 2016 with the finall four teams of each region advancing from the regionals.

PCC made it into the final state top 10 in 2009, 2010, and 2012. Silva was selected SCC All Sports Women's Coach of the Year in 2009-10. Between 2009-2012, four of Silva's players Patti Blasco, Jessica Xu, Aliyyah Abduallah, and Jackie Valle-Acosta were picked to the prestigious 7-player All-State Team. Blasco was conference MVP in 2009 and Jennifer Estrada was MVP in 2012.
