As a senior, Grossnickle helped the Mustangs to the title game of the 2009 ECAC Division III South Championship and the first 20-win season in school history as the team went 20-13. He led the team with 285 digs, a mark that ranks third all-time in school history. Also that year, Stevenson led the nation in digs per game.
