The 1979 Bucks posted a 32-0 state record, and won the state championship at a time when National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Volleyball teams competed in only one division, according to current L&C Athletic Director Doug Stotler. The team earned a trip to nationals at Miami Dade College that year.

The team was selected to the hall of fame by a committee of college officials and local media.

“We are proud to welcome Coach Judy Gass and several of the players back for the induction of the much-deserving 1979 Bucks volleyball team into the Trailblazers Hall of Fame,” Stotler said. “Please join us to help celebrate these talented athletes and their coach, who made an outstanding contribution to Lewis and Clark Athletics.”
