After 22 years, girls varsity volleyball coach Lois Mast announces her retirement from coaching.
Mast has served as the head coach for the past 18 seasons, and spent 4 additional seasons with the JV team.
She is the all time Bethany leader in total career wins, and led the team to a sectional championship in 2018.
“This decision has been difficult,” said Mast. “I love the game of volleyball, I love preparing for practice, I love spending time with my players and managers, and I love the many wonderful coaches, staff and parents I’ve had the privilege to work alongside. And I love the school I’ve represented—one that stands for excellence both on the court and in relationships with others.”
Athletic Director Gary Chupp emphasizes Mast’s ability to connect with players and grow a program from that foundation.
“Our volleyball program has been one of the most stable programs throughout the years, and that’s a reflection of the energy Lois has poured into it,” said Athletic Director Gary Chupp. “But what stands out even more is the caring relationships she was able to develop with our players.”
“It has been a privilege to be part of Bethany’s volleyball program, and it will be exciting to see how the team grows and changes under a new head coach,” said Mast. “The future of Bethany volleyball is bright!”
