Geoff Noisy was one of the most prolific wide receivers in school history, setting the NCAA record for career receptions at the time, and continues to appear in the NCAA and school record books in numerous receiving categories. Suzanne Stonebarger Barnes is one of the top volleyball players in Wolf Pack history and has gone on to become a star on the professional volleyball circuit, while Treamelle Taylor was an All-American and key contributor on Nevada's Big Sky championship and NCAA Division I-AA national runner-up team in 1990."
