When & Where
This camp will be led by Head Coach Nadia Edwards. Edwards, a Frankfort, Ill. native, is entering her fifth as the DePaul head volleyball coach. She became the fifth head coach in program history after joining the Blue Demon staff in February of 2010. Edwards boasts a high level of experience as a student-athlete at Penn State and a professional playing career overseas.
This season she led the Blue Demons to 16 wins, the most for the program since 2001. Under the leadership of Edwards, DePaul opened the season 13-0, which established a new program record for consecutive wins to begin a season.
DePaul received a weekly conference honor in seven of the season’s 13 weeks. The team’s seven weekly honors were the most in program history.
Prior to becoming the fifth head coach at DePaul, Edwards served as an assistant at Ohio State for two seasons. With the Buckeyes, she helped the program reach the second round of the 2009 NCAA Championship after finishing fourth in the Big Ten.
After spending time at Virginia Tech, Edwards joined the Ohio University volleyball staff in May 2005. The Bobcats claimed three straight Mid-American Conference titles and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of the 2005 NCAA Championship. Ohio made three straight NCAA appearances and was ranked in the AVCA top 25 for 42 consecutive weeks.
