There are some big staff changes with the Northview Volleyball program for the 2020 season. Head Coach, Chad Rutkowski, stated "we are beyond excited to announce some coaching changes within the Northview staff as we welcome Northview alum, Abbey Pawlak, back to our gym; we hire a former standout player for me at Cardinal Stritch, Sara Turner-Smith; and Coach Heidi Wiczynski will assume the role as the new Head Junior Varsity Volleyball coach."
For the 2020 season, Coach Heidi Wiczynski will resume the role of Head Junior Varsity Volleyball Coach. This comes as Coach Kayla Brown will be taking a leave as her and her husband welcome their first child. Coach Kayla will continue to be around the Northview program and in the gym throughout the season. Coach Heidi has put together a very impressive resume in her first two years leading the freshman program and we are delighted that she has agreed to take on this new role as the Head Junior Varsity Coach.
The new additions to the coaching staff include Abbey Pawlak ’15, as a Volunteer Varsity Assistant, and Sara Turner-Smith, Freshman Head Volleyball Coach. Abbey was a phenomenal libero at Northview during the 2011 – 2014 seasons, before playing four years at the University of Akron. She is currently teaching at Stranahan Elementary. Sara Turner-Smith was a standout outside hitter for Coach Chad Rutkowski at Cardinal Stritch before playing for Owens Community College.
