CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Washington College head volleyball coach Lacey Lister has announced the hiring of Jamie Leventry as the team's associate head coach. In addition, 2012 graduate Jen Potts will return to the team as an assistant coach this fall.
Leventry has an extensive background in collegiate, high school, and club coaching. He most recently served as an assistant volleyball coach at Goucher College during the 2010 and 2011 seasons. His duties included recruiting as well as developing the team's setters and defensive specialists. During his time at Goucher, he recruited and trained two All-Landmark Conference players.
From 2005 to 2009, Leventry put together an impressive run as head volleyball coach at Severna Park High School, compiling a win-loss record of 57-13 and winning Anne Arundel County Championships in 2007 and 2009. Under his guidance, two Severna Park players earned Anne Arundel County Player of the Year honors and several others received All-Metro and All-County recognition.
Since 2003, Leventry has also served as a head coach for Bay Area Volleyball Academy (BAVA), a youth volleyball club in Anne Arundel County. Leventry has coached teams in four age groups, from 15 to 18, for BAVA. His teams have won numerous volleyball tournaments within the region.
Many of Leventry's student-athletes at both Severna Park and BAVA have gone on to play collegiate volleyball in all three NCAA Divisions.
Leventry earned a B.S. in Business Administration from Towson University in 2006.
Jen Potts was a four-year member of the Shorewomen's team, playing as a defensive specialist. After missing her entire junior year with an injury, Potts bounced back her senior season to post career highs in digs (33), sets played (28), and matches played (18). During her time on the sidelines as a junior, Potts gained valuable experience assisting the coaching staff.
Potts was also active in Character Counts and served as president of the Sigma Tau chapter of the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority while an undergraduate student at Washington College. She graduated with degrees in History and American Studies from the College in May.
