Natasha Cook

Believe it or not, I began playing volleyball in the 9th grade as a middle blocker. With basketball being my main sport, I was exceptionally good at volleyball, where I fell in love with the sport and took it to the next level. After high school I received a full athletic scholarship to play for the mighty Tigers of Hiawassee College in Madisonville, TN for both basketball and volleyball. Although I’m retired from playing, my passion for winning is still there. I also teach Yoga full-time as an instructor to stay active. My love for Volleyball has brought me here to coach and teach my daughters the game I grew to love. I look forward to a successful season.

 

Taylor Wright

My name is Taylor Wright! I’m from Atlanta, GA and a graduate of Huntingdon College in Montgomery, AL. I played all 4 years of undergrad as a MH and played RS/MH at Riverwood International Charter High School. My favorite thing about playing volleyball is the friendships I’ve made, and the valuable lessons about mental toughness I’ve learned both on and off the court. I am very excited and optimistic about my first year of coaching with the APVB program!
