The 1982 University of Dubuque women's volleyball team had three goals in mind to start the year: to improve on last season's remarkable 45-8 record, to win the firs-ever Iowa Conference Championship, and to advance to postseason tournament play. The nationally ranked UD women left their mark on the court with a record breaking 46 wins and won the IIAC Championship by defeating Central in the finals 17-19, 15-2, 15-7. The Spartans went 3-0 in pool play and didn't lose a set in the first two rounds of the tournament.

First Team All-IIAC honorees were Lori Anda, Jan Jacobs (Hall of Fame Class of 1996-97), and Lori Kamp (Hall of Fame Class of 2008-09).
