Amy Wengrenovich named Cedarville University Assistant Volleyball Coach
Cedarville University women’s volleyball head coach Doug Walters has announced that former Virginia Tech volleyball standout Amy Wengrenovich has accepted an assistant coach position beginning with the 2011 season.
Wengrenovich will graduate from Virginia Tech on May 13 with a bachelor of science degree in psychology. She will be pursuing her master's degree in education at Cedarville.
Wengrenovich's first duties at CU will be working the summer volleyball camps and she will officially join the athletic department on August 1, 2011.
Wengrenovich will serve as the first assistant for the varsity team as a graduate assistant. Her primary duties will be working with the back line defense and serve receive as well as video analysis and opponent scouting reports. In addition, she will be assisting in the areas of practice planning, strength & conditioning, NCAA compliance, recruiting and travel arrangements.
Wengrenovich played in 116 career matches for the Hokies notching 922 digs, 99 assists and 74 service aces. The 5-foot-10 libero/defensive specialist recorded double-digit digs in 36 career matches. This past season she finished second on the team in digs per set, averaging 2.79 with a total of 293. A highlight of her senior campaign was returning to the lineup after missing three matches due to a wrist injury and helping the Hokies to a 3-1 win over then-RPI #9 Duke.
"Amy has been a integral part of the growth of the Virginia Tech volleyball program," said Virginia Tech head coach Chris Riley. "Amy s tremendous character and presence as a leader in our program have been the foundation of our program's growth. We could not have made the advancements without her. She will be missed as a player but she will be missed even more as a leader and friend.
"Amy will be a tremendous coach and she will be a benefit to any program. Cedarville is getting a great person."
