Earl Kneessi named 13-2 Head Coach for the 2018-2019 season!
Megan Barnes will be assisting Earl for their 8th season together. Megan has been an integral part of team development with Earl over the years at A5, helping a number of teams medal and earn bids for USAV Nationals. Megan and Earl met at Virginia Tech where Earl was a volunteer assistant coach and Megan was a standout 4-year starter middle blocker. They both developed a passion for the game and learned the fundamentals of playing and coaching and some lifelong habits (neither can stand being late because of one of their coaching mentors). After a number of years in different cities and coaching for different clubs, they reconnected and started coaching together at A5. At Virginia Tech, Megan finished her career 2nd all-time in total blocks, ranked top 10 career in total blocks, single season total blocks, ranked 4th for career block solos, and holds the record for volleyball standing vertical leap since 1996. We are excited for one of the top duos at A5 to be working together again!
