BANGS — Noted volleyball coach Lee Grisham will be in Bangs this week to give the Bangs Dragons volleyball players one last tuneup before they head into two-a-days next week.
Bangs head coach Colleen Westfall is excited to have a coach of Grisham’s prominence in the sport teaching her players.
“We will also have a few players coming to the camp that we played this summer from area teams,” Westfall said. Players from Wylie, Cisco and Abilene are invited.
The camp is for varsity players only. Grisham’s daughter, Jessie, is a three-time state MVP setter and she will be there to teach the tricks of the trade to the players eager to get the season underway.
“My biggest goal is to get the kids learning as much as possible from Coach Grisham. He is one of the best volleyball coaches in the country,” Westfall said.
During Grisham’s time as head coach at Wimberley, he led the program to state championships in 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007. Wimberley also reached the state championship game in 2010 and reached the state tournament in 2008 and 2009.
In 11 of his 15 years at Wimberley, the program advanced to the regional finals and posted a 495-111 record during that span.
Jessie Grisham was the Class 3A state MVP during Wimberley’s three-peat from 2001-03.
The camp will be held from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Bangs High School gym.
