VCS Hires Hannah Tedrow as Head Girls Volleyball Coach
Village Christian Girls Volleyball has established itself as one of the top programs in Southern California.
Hannah Tedrow wants to keep it that way.
VCS has hired Tedrow as its new head girls volleyball coach, taking over a program that has won 14 league titles, three CIF Southern Section Division champions, one CIF State Regional crown, and ranked as high as No. 15 in the USA Today/AVCA national poll.
“We are thrilled to bring Hannah to the VCS Volleyball Family,” said Athletic Director Diana Putignano. “Her playing and coaching experience will be a great asset to our program and our school. We can't wait to see what Hannah and girls can do on the court this fall.”
Tedrow is a longtime coach at San Gabriel Valley Elite Volleyball Club and previously coached at Mayfield, Viewpoint, Westridge, and Flintridge-Sacred Heart. As a setter at Loyola Marymount University, she was a two-time All-West Coast Conference first team honoree, American Volleyball Coaches Association honorable mention All-American, and made three trips to the NCAA Tournament under legendary head coach Tom Black.
And while she’s ready to compete against the best, Tedrow also wants to foster the family environment hallmark to the Village experience.
“The biggest goal I have is to make this year enjoyable for the girls,” she said. “We obviously all love to win – I know I do – but it’s the memories that I know these girls will remember the most. I’m excited to compete at a high level and go as far as we possibly can and build a program that people want to be a part of.”
In addition to coaching, Tedrow, who has taught for five years in the Burbank Unified School District and earned her Bachelor’s in education at LMU and her Master’s in Developmental Psychology from Azusa Pacific University, will be teaching Middle School History and PE at VCS.
“As soon as I stepped onto campus, I could feel how positive the atmosphere was,” she said. “The staff members were all very friendly and answered any questions I had. A big reason I am excited to be here is because I hold my faith very close to me, and I am excited to be able to project that to the kids. I am excited to make an impact in these students’ lives both in the classroom and on the court.”
