Seymour Named MHVCA Assistant Coach of the Year
Cassville High School Assistant Volleyball Coach, Coach Chris Seymour, has been named the Class 3 Missouri High School Volleyball Coaches Association (MHSVCA) Assistant Coach of the Year.
Coach Seymour has served as an assistant coach for four years at CHS and this year he was challenged with the task of serving as head coach while Head Coach Briana Kleine was away on maternity leave.
"Our season was chaotic," stated Coach Kleine. "I went on maternity leave two days before our first tournament and Coach Seymour had to take over the entire season and into districts."
In addition to Coach Kleine's leave, the team had to overcome obstacles related to quarantines and blended learning at the high school level.
"Coach Seymour had to establish a line-up that worked for our team despite quarantine and COVID related challenges. It was absolutely nuts, but he did a great job stepping up. He coached the girls through districts and even got a first round win!" stated Kleine.
MHVCA Assistant Coach of the Year is an honor that is nominated by their head coach.
