FREDERICKTOWN – Fredericktown High School Athletic Director Nate Bellman has announced that Tami Vaughn, a 1984 FHS graduate, will take over as the head varsity volleyball coach at FHS.
Vaughn takes over a program that went 22-5 in 2019, won the district championship and qualified for regionals for the first time since 2002. The Freddies return four lettermen from last year’s squad along with a host of young talent heading into the 2020 season.
“I’d like to thank Dr. Susan Hayward, high school principal Brent Garee and athletic director Nate Bellman for their support through this process. I am extremely grateful and appreciative for this opportunity to serve as the next varsity head volleyball coach at Fredericktown High School,” said Vaughn.
Vaughn added, “I am really looking forward to working with the young women in the volleyball program. We will represent Fredericktown well and will continue to help our young women grow and develop on and off court.”
Bellman is excited about Vaughn joining the Freddies. “Tami has served in a variety of capacities over the years with the Fredericktown and Clear Fork volleyball programs and has also coached club volleyball for several years. Her experience will serve us well as she transitions into the varsity head volleyball coach role.”
Bellman added, “Tami will continue to move our volleyball program forward in a positive direction and get our girls excited about playing volleyball.”
According to Bellman there will be a “Meet the Coach” night in the near future where community members, parents and student-athletes will be able to meet and visit with Coach Vaughn. Date and time will be announced in the near future.
