SALINA – North Sevier High School has selected Sloane Robinson as the new head coach for NSHS’ volleyball team. Dawn Robinson, Kati Mason and Peyton Shepherd will assist her.
“After people at the school and within the community contacted me to see if I would be interested in the position, I decided to apply,” Sloane said. “I was excited to get the position and am looking forward to the season, as well as helping the girls develop.”
The game plan for the upcoming season is to build teamwork, incorporate consistency, get the players used to and comfortable in their set positions and be competitive in the 2A division, according to Sloane.
“The girls are really coachable and are catching on quickly to the new things I’m implementing,” Sloan said. “We are working on incorporating a quicker momentum of play and a slightly different defense than they have played in the past. We’re also further developing skills such as jump serves and spot serving. We have switched up some positions in effort to utilize the players’ strengths and put them where they will contribute the most given their skill sets.”
Sloane is a seven-year resident of Salina, where she lives with her husband, Riley Robinson, and two children – a five year-old daughter and a three year-old son. She grew up in Richfield and attended Snow College.
