Wilkes began playing volleyball at the varsity level in 1975.
Competing in the Middle Atlantic Conference, the Lady Colonels captured the 1982 Middle Atlantic Conference Northeast title, while also setting a school-record with 16 victories. Wilkes also snagged four consecutive NPWIAA championships from 1980 to 1983.

Lady Colonel players have had their share of individual honors gained, including 23 players being named to the conference's all-star team. The Lady Colonels have also had 27 players earn MAC All-Academic honors, including 1998 graduate Rebecca Baker, who was also named to the Regional Academic All-American first team.  Nicole Hahn joined Baker as an Academic Regional All-American when she earned first team honors in 2005 and 2006.  Hahn also garnered second team National Academic All-American honors during the 2006 season.

The Wilkes volleyball team currently plays in the Freedom Conference and earned a playoff berth in 2004. The champion of the eight-team conference receives an automatic berth into the NCAA Division III championships.
