Laura Mackley Named as Montgomery Catholic's New Varsity Volleyball Coach 1

Laura Mackley has been named the new varsity volleyball coach at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School beginning this summer.

“I am very excited to be joining the Family at Montgomery Catholic and extremely excited to have a positive impact on the volleyball program,” said Mackley.

“I am really looking forward to working with the young ladies at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School and being able to help them grow and develop into strong, talented ladies on and off the court.  One of my main goals is to continue to develop the love for the game with these girls while helping take the program to a whole new level of competition by increasing their skill set.  I am very thankful for this opportunity to be a positive role model for the young ladies at MCPS, and I am really looking forward to this new chapter of my life! “

Mackley comes to Montgomery Catholic from Lincoln Memorial University, in Harrogate, Tennessee, where she served as a graduate assistant for the volleyball program this past season.  She was also the head coach of the Phoenix Rising Volleyball Club (17 and under team) this past year.
“I am excited about the experience and enthusiasm Coach Mackley will bring to our program,” said school president Anne Ceasar. “She is not so far removed from the playing court that she has forgotten her love and passion for the game. She will be a vital part of these girls’ lives on and off the court, helping them become persons of faith, virtue, and wisdom.”
Mackley is a graduate of Troy University with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Physical Science. She lettered in volleyball for four years at Troy under head coach Sonny Kirkpatrick. During all four years at Troy, Mackley coached club volleyball for Deep South Volleyball Club.  

“Laura comes to Montgomery Catholic with a great plan and aspirations of where she can take our volleyball program,” said Athletic Director Travis Jarome. “She is a great addition to our staff, with coaching experience at the club level and in college.  She learned from some of the best while playing at Troy and will use that experience as a collegiate player to elevate our volleyball program.

She brings a great work ethic, and I am excited to see what she brings to the volleyball program for the future.  The future looks bright for the Montgomery Catholic volleyball program.”

Mackley, who is originally from Centerburg Ohio, will begin her coaching responsibilities at Montgomery Catholic in May.
