A trio of high school coaches have been recommended to us over the last couple of day.s
Issac Owens has coached the boys team at Esperanza high school for 13 years, leading the program to four CIF titles (2002, 2007, 2013 and 2014).The Aztecs were selected the national team of the year by Volleyball Magazine in 2007. They were also state team of the year. His overall record is 281-115. His teams have gone undefeated in the Century League for previous four seasons (48-0). Owens recently resigned from the boys’ team, but will continue to coach the girls.
Stephen Pierce has coached the Eden High School team for 27 years and recently became the winningest coach in New York history with over 900 victories and 11 state championships (also a state record). His team has been ranked as high as #16 nationally. He was the Prepvolleyball.com 2010 National Volleyball High School Co-Coach of the Year.
Eric Sullivan is currently the coach at Marquette University High School. He took over seven years ago and in that time has won the state championship 5 times. He has produced multiple All State awards averaging more than 1 every year (I count 10 not including 2010 because I cannot find it). Sully also had a string of successes as the North Shore (now just Milwaukee) 18s coach, finishing in gold multiple times in a row and sending many to college. It’s also worth noting that his Marquette team had Conrad Kaminski and Peter Hutz on the floor at last years national championship.
