Polk County Volleyball Club bigger than ever entering sixth season

Polk County Volleyball Club is set to swing into its sixth season of competition with a record number of teams.

PCVC will field seven teams during its 2020 season, including two 12-year-old teams and two 13-year-old teams. The seven teams include some 60 local players.

With the expansion also comes a handful of new coaches. Polk County Middle School assistant coach Amber Styles will lead one 12U team, assisted by Ansley Lynch and Ashley Self, with recent Polk County High players Meadow Becker and Sydney Waldman leading the other.

Veteran coach Shawn Corhn will coach the 15U squad. Corhn, who coached for many years at Rugby Middle School as well as with the travel program at Xcel Volleyball, is the mother of Polk County High head coach Molly Hill, who will return to lead one 13U squad. Also returning are Savannah Webb, who will coach the 14U team; Donna Hall, who will help with the 17U squad; and Kara Overholt, who will coach the other 13U squad and help with 17U.

Tournament play for the club will begin in late January and will continue into April.
