MSSU Volleyball adds Rachel Rees to coaching staff

Updated:

JOPLIN --  Missouri Southern volleyball coach Trish Knight has announced the addition of Rachel Rees to her coaching staff. 

Rees replaces Austin Warren who left to take the head coaching position at Camdenton High School. 

"I am really happy to have Rachel join our staff," Knight said.  "She has had experience as a head coach at the club and high School level.  Rachel was an accomplished setter and has a good grasp of the game, both technically and strategically.  She will be an excellent addition to our staff."

A 2008 graduate of Evangel University in Springfield, Rees was a four-year starter in college at setter, playing her freshman season at William Woods, before transferring to Evangel. 

While at Evangel, she was a three-time Academic All-American. After graduation, Rees spent a season as the 6th-8th grade volleyball coach at Raymondville Middle School, and then moved on to be the head varsity coach at Eldon High School the season following. 

Rees has a four-year old son, Daxton, and is engaged to Dustin Kirkman. The couple plan a summer of 2013 wedding. 

"I am really excited and grateful for the opportunity to coach at MSSU," Rees said. "I've looked up to Trish (Coach Knight) since I was a young player and am thrilled for the chance to coach with her.  We are excited for what this year has in store for the MSSU volleyball program."
