Wednesday Georgia College introduced the program's first volleyball coach.
Gretchen Krumkieck stepped up to the podium as students, faculty and fans gave her a warm welcome.
This is her first head coach job. Krumdieck spent the last three years as an assistant at division one Davidson College and stepped in as the interim head coach in 2010. She graduated in 2003 from Wheeling Jesuit University, where she helped her team to two regular season championships and an appearance in the NCAA Division II tournament.
The bobcats will start spiking the ball in 2013 and Krumdieck says she will start recruiting right away for her quick-paced style of play.
"Atlanta is a big hot bed of volleyball talent right now and they also have a high academic standard caliber type of athlete, so that will be my main focus in the fall. I like to run a really fast offense, its going to be really exciting a lot of quick sets and we're going to be really fast and really explosive," Krumdieck said.
As with the other sports the Bobcats will compete in the Peachbelt conference.
Georgia College spokesperson Al Weston says the school added volleyball to fall in line with title nine requirements. He says they may also down the road add women's swimming, lacrosse or golf. They do not have plans for beach volleyball.
