McNeese State names Kristee Porter as new volleyball coach
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — McNeese State University has a new leader at the helm of its girls' volleyball program.
Kristee Porter has been named head coach after serving similar stints at Navarro Junior College and Henderson State, Director of Athletics Bruce Hemphill announced Monday.
“This is an exciting addition to McNeese Volleyball and the Athletic Department,” said Hemphill. “The success she’s had as a player and a coach is impressive and we’re thrilled to have her bring that experience and success to McNeese. To be able to attract someone like Kristee to McNeese is a perfect testament on how much the McNeese brand has expanded across the country.”
Porter is a three-time All-American at UCLA and NCAA Player of the Year and director of Volleyball Operations at Factory Athletics/Under Armour, where she led the division's day-to-day operations.
Porter replaces Ashleigh Fitzgerald, whose contract was not renewed in 2019. Fitzgerald compiled an 80-109 record in six seasons at the helm, including a 42-54 Southland Conference record.
