On Wednesday, April 19, the Southeastern Indiana Volleyball (SEIVB) coaching staff wrapped up their season with an end of year dinner. After dinner, we handed out a few awards to recognize our returning coaches who continue to dedicate their time and energy into improving area volleyball and impacting the future of volleyball in Southeastern Indiana.
Tracy Meyer has been involved with the club for ten years. She continues to push her teams as well as be a cheerleader from the sidelines. Tracy enjoys the game and watching her daughter play for Batesville in the fall.
The other years of service award was given to Larry Ehler for 20 years of dedication to the club. He has been an important part of the club since the beginning in 1997. Larry currently serves as a member of the board of directors for SEIVB as well as a coach in the 14-18s ages. Larry is also the assistant coach at East Central High School.
We also recognized the teams that finished in the gold bracket at the Mideast Qualifier (MEQ) in Indianapolis at the end of March. Head coaches Ned Rogers and Emily Egbers finished 5th and 3rd respectively at the top tournament in this area.
Overall, it was a great season for SEIVB. Several teams came home with tournament championships, others were lucky to go .500 on the weekend. However, all coaches felt the girls on their team improved drastically throughout the season and they will be contributors for their school teams next year.
“We have a great group of coaches at our club. They are fun to watch coach and really do have a love for the game and the girls. I’m not sure they truly understand the impact they have on the girls and this game, but we are honored to have them and hope to have them all back again next year!” – Cassie Laker, SEIVB Board of Directors.
