BCS announces Alli Hawkins Stiffney as varsity volleyball coach

Bethany Christian Schools is excited to announce Alli Hawkins Stiffney as the new varsity volleyball coach, beginning next fall.
 
“I am so excited to accept this opportunity to lead the volleyball program at BCS. I have had a front row seat in watching Lois Mast build the program over the last 21 years and I am so excited to continue on that legacy,” said Alli.
 
Alli brings a wealth of experience and familiarity with the Bethany volleyball program, having served as an assistant coach for two seasons and then as JV coach for two recent seasons in 2019 and 2020.

Athletic Director Gary Chupp emphasized the value of this experience. “Alli has been instrumental in our volleyball program for many years, both as an outstanding setter in her playing days, and the last couple years serving as our JV volleyball coach,” he said. “Her passion for both volleyball and BCS will be contagious as she looks to continue to build on the outstanding legacy left behind by Lois Mast.”
 
Alli is a 2006 graduate of Bethany Christian Schools, where she still holds several volleyball records, including the second place all-time assists leader and all-time service ace leader. She was also a four-year starting setter at Goshen College.
 
In addition to her success on the court and love for the sport, Alli also values the time spent with teammates and coaches as an integral part of the development of student athletes.
 
“I had such a wonderful experience as a student athlete at Bethany and I hope to give similar opportunities to the current students, with lots of opportunity for learning and growth,” said Alli. “I love the beautiful sport of volleyball and look forward to instilling that passion and love of the sport to the student athletes. I also look forward to building relationships with the team! I think there are so many ways that sports contribute to the development of the whole-person and I love that I get to be a small part of the athlete's development.”

Bethany Christian Schools is excited to welcome Alli as a varsity coach and look forward to her first season next fall.
