Stevenson became the first NCAA Division III institution to take to the court in beach volleyball this season and is currently just one of two Division III schools to sponsor the sport. The team debuted on March 13 against Division II Carson-Newman and had a handful of Division I schools on its schedule. The NCAA approved beach volleyball as its 90th championship sport in September 2015. The Mustangs finished the inaugural season with six victories, including going 3-1 in the first-ever home tournament. The team finished the season winning five of the last seven contests.
