Wilberforce University in Ohio Will Offer Two New Women’s Sports in 2024

Wilberforce University, the historically Black educational institution in Wilberforce, Ohio, has announced that it is adding two new women’s sports. The university, which recently joined the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference, will offer women’s volleyball and women’s soccer beginning this coming fall.

“Adding women’s volleyball and soccer to our roster is another example of how sports initiatives increase enrollment and create excitement in the activities culture for our students,” said Wilberforce athletics director John Hill.  “Members of these new teams will also be included in the athletics department scholarship offerings.”

Jasmine Coleman, who will be the volleyball coach, was an assistant basketball and volleyball coach at Rust College in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Megan Moran will be the soccer coach. She played D-1 college soccer at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
