Oct. 5, 2007
LOS ANGELES -- Former USC women's volleyball player Paula Weishoff will be honored during the USC-Oregon State match on Thursday (Oct. 11) at the Galen Center. The ceremony, dubbed 'All-Time Great Night' will be the first of two held this season with USC honoring former setter Debbie Green on Nov. 17.
'Paula has made an impact at every level where she has been a player or a coach,' said USC women's volleyball head coach Mick Haley. 'She has represented USC in the highest regard and her impact on the sport is why we are honoring her. We want to recognize her as one of the all-time greats ever to play at USC.'
As a middle blocker, Weishoff was inducted into the Volleyball Hall of Fame in 1998. She spent 16 years with the U.S. National Team, including three appearances in the Olympics (1984, 1988 and 1992). She was named most valuable player at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
Her honors included being selected to Volleyball Magazine's All-Time Indoor Team and was named to the U.S. Volleyball's All-Era Team (1978-2002). Weishoff played one season for the Women of Troy (1980), helping USC to the AIAW national championship.
After her playing career, she served as an assistant coach at USC for seven years, including two national championship squads (2002 and 2003).
Currently, she is the head coach at Concordia University in Irvine, Calif. In her first year at Concordia (2004), she led the Eagles to a 36-4 record as well as finishing as the runners-up at the NAIA National Championship Tournament. She also led Concordia to third-place finishes in the tournament in 2005 and 2007.
Thursday's match with Oregon State will begin at 7 p.m.
