COACH LAUREN WILLIAMS
"This is my first year with the Berean family both on the court and in the classroom. I am so excited to coach these young ladies this season and share my love for volleyball with them. I will also be on campus during the day, teaching in the lower campus SOAR program, where I am blessed everyday to work with our younger students.
I graduated from Carson-Newman University in 2021, where I got a B.S. in Special Education along with playing Beach Volleyball for Carson Newman all four years. Playing there led to me further falling in love with volleyball and a passion to coach young women and lead them with Christ’s love. I cannot wait for these upcoming years at Berean and to see what God has in store for this volleyball program."
Volleyball takes place in the fall from August thru beginning of October. Tryouts are usually in May.

Matt has spent the last five years teaching mathematics in Jefferson county and Knox county and spent three of those coaching Boys Basketball.

After three years of coaching Matt and Jillian believe that the Lord has called them to Berean to help the Lady Eagles become the best version of themselves both as soccer players and as Christian young women.
