The 2019 Platteville volleyball team owned the Southwest Wisconsin Conference.

The Hillmen won a third straight conference title with a perfect 10–0 league mark and didn’t drop a single set in league play all season. As expected, the Hillmen also dominated the league’s awards, claiming seven all-conference awards, as well as the SWC’s top two individual honors.

Platteville’s Danielle Duerst was named the 2019 SWC Coach of the Year. Senior Izzy Carroll was named the Co-SWC Player of the Year for a second straight season, sharing this year’s honor with River Valley senior Ali Hoffman.

Junior Alyana Digman joined Carroll on the nine-player All-SWC first-team, while sophomore Emily Fields, seniors Becca Hoyer, Josie Nies and MJ Stephens, and junior Maddie Cooley were all named to the seven-player All-SWC second team.
