Favorite Volleyball Memory:
It is a challenge to pick one favorite volleyball memory, as there are so many that come to mind. Truthfully even with amazing seasons (record-wise), my favorites include things like pasta suppers at my house, taking the team to read with elementary students, and our traditional season kick-off bike night scavenger hunts.
Molly Geise

2005 South Central Iowa Class 2A District Coach of the year, 2005 Mid-Iowa Ames Tribune Coach of the year. Record 212-194. Started head coaching at Roland-Story High School in 2004.
Favorite Volleyball Memory:
I honestly don't have one specific favorite memory. Every year the relationships with the kids and the process and growth within the season feel like favorite memories at that time. I love watching past players grow into successful women, wives and mothers and the continued bond we share from our time in volleyball.

Favorite Volleyball Memory:
