Clark State Community College welcomed Angie Arthur as the new head coach of women’s volleyball.
Angie Arthur will enter her 15th year of coaching as she becomes the head volleyball coach for Clark State. She began her coaching career at Olive Branch Middle School and then moved up to the junior varsity position at Tecumseh High School. From there, Arthur went on to coach varsity at Emmanuel Christian Academy. She has also coached volleyball for Kenton Ridge High School and the Sharks Volleyball Club.
“Coach Arthur brings numerous years of experience as a coach to the Clark State volleyball program,” said Justin McCulla, director of athletics and student life. “She is a very humble coach who brings a high quality of coaching experience to Clark State. She will provide high energy coaching and help us compete in the OCCAC. I look forward to watching Coach Arthur encourage, develop and prepare our young women to reach their highest potential as student-athletes at Clark State.”
Arthur said she decided the Clark State coaching position would be a new challenge and good fit for her. “I am working daily to recruit players,” she said. “I would love to put together a competitive team full of local talent who love the sport of volleyball and can appreciate the opportunity to continue to play it in their college life experience.”
As far as team goals go, Arthur said she would love to see Clark State be more competitive in the conference. “Although this will be my first experience in the collegiate world of volleyball, I am truly looking forward to the challenge and new opportunities it may bring!”
The Clark State women’s volleyball season will begin in August. Tryouts will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 9 and Thursday, July 11 in the Clark State gymnasium.
