A new era is set to begin for Valdosta State volleyball in 2018, as Valdosta State Athletic Director Herb Reinhard announced Kaleigh Zoucha as the new head volleyball coach at Valdosta State University. Zoucha, a former player and assistant coach at volleyball powerhouse Nebraska Kearney, brings a winning track record to Valdosta State. After having competed in the NCAA Tournament during each of her four years as a student-athlete, she made a seamless transition to the coaching staff and helped lead the Lopers to a 152-24 record during her five years as an assistant coach.
Throughout that same stretch, the Lopers finished eighth, fifth, 15th, fifth, and ninth in the final American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) national poll. While playing as a defensive specialist at UNK, she became one of just 29 players in school history to record 1,000 career digs. In addition, her team posted a record of 131-13 during her four seasons as a student-athlete and finished 12th, fifth, ninth, and third in the final AVCA rankings.
Coach Zoucha believes in hiring the best and most enthused coaches possible. Each day fundamentals, skills and techniques will be emphasized and covered thoroughly by our outstanding coaches. Games and team play will also be emphasized throughout the day.
