Co-Coach 16 Black

Katie Green has been around volleyball since she was very young. Her mother coached high school volleyball, she was always at the practices shagging balls, trying to pass to herself or the high schoolers were tossing balls to her getting touches and knowledge. Katie was a four year starter in high school and played where ever needed until I settled into setting her junior or senior year. Katie played club volleyball starting my sophomore year of high school.


From High School Katie went on to play on scholarship at Missouri Baptist as a setter and went with the team to the NAIA national tournament my senior year.

Her playing career pretty much ended after college, she worked as the sports information director for the men's and women's indoor volleyball teams at Missouri Baptist and then the women's indoor and beach teams at University of Louisiana at Monroe. Katie now continues to work with men's and women's college volleyball in sports information/athletic communications to this day but at the NAIA national office instead of at one specific school. So she gets to attend the national championship and tell the story of what happens there.
