NEW MARKET – Heather Miller was named head volleyball coach at Southmont yesterday, six days prior to the first day of practice.
“I would like to thank Southmont, and Mr. Charles, for giving me this great opportunity to coach the Mounties,” Miller said. “I’m looking forward to getting started Monday.”
The 1997 Crawfordsville graduate is currently a fourth grade teacher at Turkey Run Elementary. She served as the assistant softball coach at Crawfordsville for five years, the head junior varsity and assistant varsity volleyball coach at Turkey Run for two seasons, and helped the Warrior softball program for a year.
She will take over the Mountie team that finished 8-26 last season, but has quite a bit of talent returning.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know the girls and build as a team,” Miller said. “I’m counting on this group to build the foundation for Mountie volleyball.”
