Santa Rosa Junior College Women's Volleyball program has established a tradition of excellence. The Lady Bear Cubs are always a highly competitive group of individuals, continually striving to improve. The coaching staff at SRJC believes that hard work and focus, combined with a positive learning atmosphere leads to success. When an athlete leaves the volleyball program, it is expected that they will look back on their experience with fondness and appreciation of all that they acquired as a player, as well as a person. The Bear Cubs participate in the highly competitive Big 8 Conference, the toughest conference in Northern California. Since 1996 the team has gone to the 2nd round of regional playoffs at the very least. Five of those years, they have made it to the state tournament, which consists of the top eight teams in the state of California. They have finished 7th, 5th(2), 4th, and 2nd. The 2008 team made school history by finishing 2nd place with an overall record of 35-2. They finished a perfect 14-0 in the big 8 conference.
