Jamie Wozniak took the reins of the Thunder program in 2010.
In just four seasons, the Thunder ripped off their best season as a member of NCAA Division III, earning a 24-6 record during the 2014 season. Five of the team's losses during the season came to teams that were ranked in the top five in the nation. The team produced an Academic All-District performer for the first team in team history. The team's success saw Trine appear in the NCAA regional rankings, a first for the team since joining Division III.
A key to the success of the program has been players performing at an all-conference level. Wozniak has coached her players to eight All-MIAA selections since 2010. Trine has had two players named All-MIAA in the same year three times, the only times that has happened since the school joined NCAA Division III. She has a career record of 98-106 entering the 2017 season.
Coach Wozniak has shown great success in developing the Victors Volleyball club program, and successful experience as the head coach of elite and national teams. She was previously an assistant coach at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, where she recruited one of the largest incoming classes in the 27-year history of the program.
In February of 2010 she was honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) as one of the Thirty Under 30 Award recipients. The award honors up-and-coming volleyball coaches younger than 30 years old in the sport at all levels of the game.The AVCA highlighted her efforts in mentoring two players to all-conference status that season.
During her tenure as a player at Michigan-Dearborn, she played outside hitter and was a solo captain for two of the most successful seasons in the history of the program. She was Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) player of the week, won the Michigan-Dearborn Coaches’ Award twice, was a member of the WHAC all-conference team in 2006 and earned the Special Program Achievement Award in 2007.
She looks to set the bar high for the Thunder, with a commitment to fundamentals, hard work and operating as a unit.
Her excitement is contagious. “I love the game of volleyball. I love to continue to learn. I love to deal in the X’s and O’s and everything that the game entails. I love the competition and I’ll find a way to get it done,” she said.
