Volleyball Programs Seeking New Normal with Season Approaching


The Blade


JUL 19, 2020

12:00 PM

If high school athletics resume as scheduled late next month amid the growing coronavirus pandemic, each will face new restrictions and methods of operation unique to each sport.

Football will see the most safety-related scrutiny because it is the biggest revenue-producer for most high school sports programs, and has the highest level of close, physical contact. But, other fall sports have had and will continue to face their own specific challenges.

Volleyball lost one of its biggest offseason staples when much of the travel club season — which normally runs from February through June — was halted. From mid-March until late June, there was no club play. High school coaches are now seeking creative ways to train players and refine their game skills to fill that void.

Wiczynski Promoted; Welcome Pawlak and Turner-Smith

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.
