2020 AVCA High School Leadership Council ThirtyUnder30 High School Award Nominations Are Being Accepted

 

“As a recipient of the 2019 AVCA ThirtyUnder30 Award, I would like to thank my athletes, assistants, colleagues, and directors for helping me grow as an educator and coach of student-athletes. 

The state of Nebraska is rich in volleyball culture, and through this community, we all work together to empower our athletes.  I am grateful for this award because it shines a light on the great people around me.”

-Mark Novotny, Head Girls Coach, Lincoln Southwest High School (Nebraska Coaches Association-Volleyball)
