Jeff Curtis, who has been a successful head volleyball coach at Archbishop Murphy from 2009-11, has been hired by Juanita in the same capacity.
The Wildcats were 37-5 in Cascade Conference play under Curtis, who currently is the U-16 coach and technical director at High Velocity Volleyball Club. They reached the title match of the Class 2A state tournament in 2009, ultimately losing to Pullman, and were 1-2 in last season’s event.
“Juanita is looking forward to having Jeff as an addition to their coaching staff,” athletic directory Steve Juzeler said in a press release.
Emily Price served as interim head coach at Juanita last fall after Teena Bambolo was abruptly fired early in the season, her 10th at the helm.
