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

“Even though we, as coaches, don’t coach to be recognized for it, we do it for the love if the game and the kids. But being recommended and recognized is a huge honor and I am very appreciative to have had my name on this list.” 

-Brittany Rodrigues, Head Girls Coach, Lake George High School
