Schunzel comes into the fall on the heels of four consecutive 20-win seasons (not counting the COVID-shorten season of 2020-21). Two of those campaigns resulted in ASUN Tournament championships and trips to the NCAA Tournament, and the Owls have finished in the top 75 of the RPI three times, including a program-best 42nd in the 2017 season.
The Owls have posted six consecutive top-two finishes in the ASUN, including this past season when its 13-3 league mark was tied for second-best in the conference standings. In 2021, Schunzel guided the Owls to their sixth-win over a Power Five school in the past five years with a 3-0 sweep over Alabama. KSU also recorded a 12-game win streak during the season, which was the 7th-longest such streak in the nation at that time before the Owls suffered a 3-2 loss in the ASUN semifinals.
The two-time ASUN Coach of the Year brings a 158-89 all-time record at KSU into the fall season, and is just four wins away from 100 league victories with a 96-38 ASUN mark. He has also seen the Owls perform at a high level in the classroom over his nine seasons, with four AVCA Team Academic Awards and 18 straight semesters with a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.
