Head Coach - 17 Royal
I always liked sports and played everything at first, but volleyball quickly became my favorite. Before I knew it I was playing middle front, setter, defensive specialist, right side, pretty much everything and I didn't care what I was asked to do. I just wanted to play and I worked hard for it. I want the players I coach to learn how rewarding it is to work for something and see yourself do things you thought you couldn't. Coach Katelynn graduated from Willis HS, where she played volleyball all 4 years. She was DS/Utility player for Willis her senior year. She joined the AVB family her freshman year of high school and played until she graduated. She received several offers to continue her volleyball career(Pasco Hernandez State College in Tampa, FL was one of them) but ultimately ended up at SHSU majoring in Animal Science.
