Jen Power '97
Inducted into the F&M Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012, Power was the first student-athlete in Centennial history to earn All-Conference honors four times. She was named the CC Player of the Year following her senior season and concluded her career as the Diplomats' all-time leader for career kills (1,540), points (1,701.5) and points per set average (4.34). A captain in both her junior and senior seniors, Power was a three-time member of the CC Fall Academic Honor Roll and earned a spot on the CoSIDA Academic All-American First Team in 1997.
Stacy Dunchick '00
Dunchick is one of only eight Centennial volleyball players to be named an All-CC First Team member on three occasions. An All-Region First Team selection in 1998, Dunchick remains among the F&M program leaders in several statistical categories. She places fifth in career kills with 1,249, fifth in attack percentage at .297, 10th in digs with 1,234, and is the Diplomat leader in total blocks with 369.
Margot Phelan '09
Phelan is one of the program's five All-Americans, receiving Honorable Mention recognition in 2006. She was a two-time All-Region selection and one of only six Centennial volleyball players to be named a four-time All-CC First Team selection – the only Diplomat to claim that honor. The CC Player of the Year in 2006, Phelan remains seventh in F&M history for career kills with 1,208, while placing second in kills per set average (3.67), and ninth in digs per set average (3.23).
Julie Harvey '15
The program's only two-time All-American and two-time CC Player of the Year, Harvey was also a four-time All-CC selection – twice making the First Team in 2011 and 2013. Her 1,134 career kills are good for ninth in the F&M career record book, while her 3.02 kills per set average ranks eighth, her .328 attack percentage places third, and her 293 total blocks stand alone in fourth.
