Matt Troy turned in an exciting first step as the new head volleyball coach at the University of Mary Washington in 2013, winning 17 matches, finishing 3rd in the Capital Athletic Conference and UMW’s first winning season since 2010. Troy comes to Fredericksburg from Johns Hopkins University, where he led the Blue Jays to a 77-21 record with two Centennial Conference Championships and NCAA Tournament appearances in three years at the helm.
“We are pleased to welcome Matt Troy to our staff as head volleyball coach” said Tyler. “Matt brings an outstanding track record of success from Johns Hopkins, one of the nation’s top academic and athletic institutions. His 54-9 record with NCAA appearances over the last two years was very appealing, and we look forward to our volleyball team reaching new heights under Matt’s leadership. Most importantly, Matt is a person of character and integrity who will motivate and inspire his student-athletes to achieve in the classroom and on the court.”
Troy led Hopkins to its best season in program history in 2012, as the team notched a program-best win-loss record of 29-4. The Blue Jays won their first 16 matches of the sea¬son and won the Centennial Conference title for the second straight season.
Hopkins dropped just four sets en route to capturing the Centennial Conference crown in 2011, as Troy was named Centennial Conference Coach of the Year. The Blue Jays finished the 2011 season with a record of 25-5.
Troy and his wife, Melissa, and their four daughters: Alexis, Kamryn, Emily and Brooke, live in Fredericksburg.
