Kavanaugh joins USI volleyball coaching staff

Former University of Southern Indiana volleyball standout Kristi Kavanaugh has been named assistant volleyball coach for the 2003 season. Kavanaugh will assist head coach Craig Bere in all facets of the USI volleyball program.

“The addition of Kristi to our coaching staff is very exciting,” Bere said. “Kristi is going to be a great coach and will prove to be a difference maker in our progress to repeat as tournament champions.”

As a player, Kavanaugh earned first-team Verizon Academic All-America honors after helping the Screaming Eagles to their first GLVC Tournament title and first berth in the NCAA Division II Tournament.

The Montgomery, Indiana, native averaged a career-high 3.06 kills and 3.39 digs per game as a senior in 2002 and etched her name in the USI record books by finishing fifth in career digs (1,153) and third in career service aces (145).

“As a player she was a major part of the development of the program over the last four years and now she will be able to pass on her enthusiasm and knowledge of the game to the younger players,” Bere explained.

A four-time Academic All-GLVC performer, Kavanaugh also earned Verizon Academic All-District V honors as a sophomore, junior, and senior.

Currently, Kavanaugh is working on her bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She will graduate in May of 2004.
