(Feb. 26, 2014) – Sherrilyn Hanna was approved as head girls volleyball coach at Loudoun County High School at Tuesday night’s school board meeting.
She has served the past two years at Loudoun County as the head JV volleyball coach, and was the head freshmen coach for two seasons prior to that. Sherrilyn brings a vast knowledge of volleyball to the position that was vacated when Jenica Brown resigned in January, after guiding the Raiders to six state titles in seven seasons.
Outside of high school volleyball, she has been a coach at Virginia Elite for the past 9 years, and has also worked with Loudoun Youth Volleyball at the select and open levels. Sherrilyn is the mother of two stand out Loudoun County volleyball players, Margurite (’08) was All State as a member of the first state championship team in 2007, and Juliane (’10) who won 3 state championships at Loudoun County while being named Virginia Gatorade player of the year in 2009.
Raider athletic director Ken Wright: “Sherrilyn came in with a plan to continue the tradition of excellence at LCHS in volleyball. It was apparent in the interview that she has a firm grasp on not only how to coach top level volleyball, but also how to run a scholastic volleyball program. She is totally on board with the mission of the athletic department at LCHS which is to succeed at the highest level on the court, while never sacrificing anything off of it. The administration at Loudoun County HS is thrilled to have someone of Sherrilyn Hanna’s caliber as the next head coach.”
