We’re excited to announce that Sara Mitchell will be joining the NCCS family as our new varsity head volleyball coach. Ms. Mitchell brings with her a high-ranking coaching resume, including club and college-level experience.
BACKGROUND + EXPERIENCE
During her own athletic career, Ms. Mitchell earned a volleyball scholarship to California University of Pennsylvania. Due to an athletic injury, she later transferred to the University of Central Arkansas, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science with a minor in Family and Consumer Sciences in 2017. Most recently, she served as the head volleyball coach for Central Baptist College in Arkansas, additionally working as the director of coaches for Conway Juniors Volleyball Club in the off-season.
“Coach Mitchell is a great fit for our school because she brings the knowledge of both competitive club and college programs,” says NCCS Athletics Director Mike Timms. “This double-edged advantage will really impact our girls from a knowledge standpoint, helping move our program to the next level. Her strong leadership skills and solid Christian faith will also provide a godly role model for our students, which is an invaluable asset.”
Being able to invest in our girls is a main motivation for Ms. Mitchell, as well. "I'm very excited to be coming to NCCS and to be joining 'the family.' I can't wait not only to meet the girls in person, but also to build relationships with them and help them grow academically, spiritually, and athletically," she says, adding that her hope is to build strong teams that will encourage participation and further grow the volleyball presence at NCCS.
TRYOUTS + HOUSING INQUIRY
Coach Mitchell plans to help run volleyball tryouts in May and relocate to our area permanently during the summer. As a school family, we would like to help secure a basement apartment or other residential option for Ms. Mitchell to rent. If anyone within our school community knows of availabilities, please kindly contact Mike Timms at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for helping us welcome Sara Mitchell to NCCS! Eagle Nation just keeps getting better and better!
