SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Volleyball coach Taylor Noland at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School is no stranger to local and state recognition as both a player and a coach. Now she has earned national recognition, as well.
The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has named Noland one of their Top 30 Under 30, an award created to honor 30 of the up-and-coming volleyball coaches 30 years old or younger, at all levels of the game. Noland is the only female high school coach in the country to receive the honor.
“It’s humbling to be named by an organization like the AVCA,” Noland said. “I just want to add, however, that this wouldn’t be possible without all the hard work from my players over the years, not to mention the support from the athletic staff and parents at Holy Innocents’.”
