KINGSTON, Ont. (April 3, 2014) – Queen's Athletics & Recreation announced today that Joely Christian-Macfarlane has made the decision to step away as head coach of the Women’s Volleyball program.

Christian-Macfarlane joined Queen’s as head coach of the women’s program in 2007-08. In the seven years she has been at the helm of the program, the Gaels have qualified six out of the seven years for playoffs and made two OUA Final Four appearances.  In 2011-12 the team captured the Ontario Championship, their first ever conference title in program history. That year the Gaels represented the OUA conference at the CIS Championship for the first time in the program’s history.

“Joely came to Queen’s seven years ago as the department’s first full-time women’s volleyball coach.  Through her efforts the program has seen much progress over that time.  We thank Joely for her service to Queen’s, our department and the women’s volleyball program and wish her every success in her future endeavors,” commented Leslie Dal Cin, Director of Athletics & Recreation. “We remain committed to our women’s volleyball program and look forward to finding a talented coach who can lead the program into the future.”
