Two new community coaches have been added to the coaching staff for East Hall's volleyball team: Alanna Dorsey and Lorna Ayon.

Dorsey is a university student who played and coached at Jackson County High School. She made the All-Region Team as a setter, won a region championship, and reach the Elite Eight her senior year. She coached for one year as a assistant to Coach Oakley at her alma mater.

"I've taught, coached, and work with Alanna for five years now. She is a person of great integrity and respect. She loves the game and works as hard as anyone. Both her focus and passion for the game will benefit the team immensely," said Head Coach Graham Oakley.

Ayon returns to her alma mater to coach. A member of the Class of 2016 and current college athlete, Ayon was part of two region championship teams as the libero. She played for three years at the varsity level reaching the Elite Eight. She has been coaching club volleyball for two years.

Oakley says "Lorna has that fire that is so hard to develop in a coach. She is competive, driven, and demands the best out of everyone. She is part of the East Hall family and it is great to have her back home."
