Hawkeye fans turned out to show their support for the Iowa volleyball team last season.

The program ranked 23rd in national attendance in 2009; the Hawkeyes averaged a school-record 1,632 fans in their 13 homes games in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

“Hawkeye fans are among the best in the country,” second-year head coach Sharon Dingman said in a release. “Carver-Hawkeye Arena is a unique venue for volleyball, and our fans’ continued support has turned our home court into a very difficult environment for opposing teams. It has become one of the toughest places to play in the Big Ten.”

Under Dingman, the Hawkeyes have managed eight of the program’s top 10 all-time attendance records. On Nov. 11, 2009, a record of 3,102 fans turned out to watch Iowa take on two-time NCAA champion and No. 1 Penn State.

The Hawkeyes finished the season 13-19 overall, 5-15 in Big Ten play.
