COSHOCTON – Ruth-Anne Coates was determined to find a volleyball coach for her school.

“We had orientation the day before school started and I wasn’t going to leave the building before I found a coach,” said the Coshocton Christian School senior.

Amber Moore ended up volunteering for the job. Her son attends the school and plays basketball there and she is an assistant on the girls’ basketball team.

“I hated to see them not be able to play, especially our one senior,” Moore said. “I know nothing about volleyball, but I’ve had people help me with tips and drills.”

Thirteen girls in seventh through 12th grade signed up to join the team. Moore said they are going to focus on fun and learning the basics since they are starting late into the season.

“We will probably play some games against parents, alumni and maybe the boys’ basketball team,” she said. “If we can get in any games (against other teams) we will do them, but we are looking at this as a growing season and time to learn together.”

Coates has played volleyball since eighth grade and is glad she gets to play her final season at the Christian School.

“It’s a mental game,” she said. “It’s not quite as physical as basketball, but it’s still challenging.”
