May 29, 2013 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports EditorLander Valley High School athletic director Barry Scott is searching for a new head volleyball coach and a Nordic ski coach.
Andee Meyer has stepped down from her position with the Tigers in volleyball.
Maggie Heller decided to resign after two years with the Nordic ski team.
Those are the only head coaching positions open at LVHS.
Meyer took the Tigers to two straight Class 3-A state tournaments in her time at LVHS.
"Andee did a great job with the volleyball program," Scott said.
Scott said Meyer plans to move to the Saratoga area, where she grew up. She went to Saratoga High School.
Scott said he has had a positive response for the volleyball vacancy.
"We should know who is going to be in the volleyball position by June," Scott said.
"Maggie has done a wonderful job," Scott said.
Heller started off the program as a assistant coach.
"She is great with the athletes," Scott said.
"She knows the sport. She just started her family. She has two young boys. Time away from the boys, gets tougher and tougher. I understand why she has left."
Heller was the head coach for two full years. She helped put on the Class 3-A Nordic ski meet with the other LVHS officials at the the Nordic season.
"I want to get that filled this summer," Scott said. "We will let that one soak for about another month, then we will see what happens."
Scott said his head coaches for the fall season will be Terry Berg (golf), Kevin Green (cross country), Doug Hughes (football) and Bruce Gresly (swimming).
The fall coaches will be heading to different camps this summer to get the Tigers prepared for the fall season.
Fall sports practice will start in the middle of August.
"We have great coaches," Scott said.
