Volleyball team gets new coach

Moving from Charles City with a 302-113 record, Johnson has coached volleyball the last 13 years. In his past 10 years of coaching Charles City, his teams made regional finals in all 10 years, and made four trips to State.

“We made the state semifinals in 2013, and were state champions in 2012. I hope to carry on my success with the Tigers this year. We have a lot of talent, which makes us such a special team.”

Johnson said he has high expectations for the returning players on the team. “We have a great senior class that is doing a good job of providing leadership in the gym. We ask a lot of our seniors to provide the leadership our program needs, and they are doing a great job. They have made my transition to CF a lot easier.”

Senior Anne Hetherton said the leadership goes both ways. “Coach is great. He has a great teaching ability and always is encouraging us to do our best. He helps us improve in all areas of the court.”

Johnson teaches at both Holmes and Peet Junior Highs, teaching three math courses and four Gateway to Technology classes. He said that the move has been gradually easier every day with all the volleyball girls helping him out.
