Barbara L. Viera
Barbara L. Viera's 27 year tenure as head women's volleyball coach at the University of Delaware is the longest in Blue Hen women's athletic history. Viera led teams to four post season national tournaments, twice to the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) and twice to the National Invitational Volleyball Championships. Her 1979 team won the Eastern AIAW title with a 35-18 record and set a record, 38 wins, while placing third in 1980. Since 1982, her teams posted a combined conference record of 99-47 (.678), including a 19 game win streak. Her teams never finished lower than 4th in the standings, qualifying for post-season play every year of her career. Viera was named "Coach of the Year" four times, 1986 in the ECC, 1992,94,96 in America East. She coached at the international level and took her teams to compete in Barbados, St. Lucia, Guatemala, Panama, Costa Rica, Argentina and Mexico. She was competition assistant at the 1996 Olympics Games. Viera authored two books and published over 30 articles. She received the Herm Reitzes Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2003. The volleyball court at Bob Carpenter Center is named after her as is the East Coast Volleyball Junior Olympic Championships. She was inducted in the U of D Hall of Fame and the American Volleyball Coaches Association HOF in 2003, Delaware Volleyball Coaches Association HOF in 2002, and the Westport High School, MA HOF in 1989.
