Weatherington Let Go after Four Seasons

KSU head volleyball coach Karen Weatherington will not be returning for a fifth season in the fall, according to an announcement on Thursday from Director of Athletics Vaughn Williams.

Weatherington was the first coach in program history, which began in 2009, and coached the Owls to a 63-56 record in four seasons.

“I want to thank coach Weatherington for her dedication and contributions to Kennesaw State over the past four seasons,”Williams said. “After an extensive assessment, I felt a change was in the best interest of the program moving forward. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”

The Owls fell at home last week to rival Mercer, 3-0, to drop 10 of their last 11 matches in conference play. The team finished with an overall record of 16-17 and 5-13 in conference.

Weatherington’s best year came in 2010, when the Owls went 17-11 and 9-1 in conference. She was named A-Sun Conference Coach of the Year.

This season the Owls started 11-4 in non-conference play before slumping in the Atlantic Sun Conference schedule.
