In the fall of 1981, a new sport emerged on the Bullis campus: girls’ volleyball.At first, much doubt surrounded the team as many of its members had never played the game before.Additionally, most of the Bullis’ opponents were seasoned competitors with much more experience. The first season proved to be challenging for the Bulldogs. The second season the team showed much improvement.Though the squad once again suffered more losses than it celebrated wins, Bullis earned a third place finish in Division A of the ISL.This was an extraordinary feat for a program in only its second year of existence.
The 1993 season brought out only seven players, but the team fought hard in each of its matches.This was the last year in which Bullis fielded a volleyball team.Due to a faltering number of participants and overall lack of interest in the sport on campus, the volleyball program was discontinued.
In 2016 volleyball returned to Bullis. Coach Cheryl Weaver had over 30 girls join the program in its first year back since 1993. Bullis fielded two teams and competed as a JV team in the ISL. After showing promise, in 2017 volleyball was reinstated as a varsity level program in the ISL.
