PALMETTO -- Amy Grosse has been named head volleyball coach for Palmetto High School, athletic director Kenny Ansbro announced Sunday.
Grosse, athletic director at Buffalo Creek Middle School, will replace Tony Cothron.
The University of South Florida graduate and former volleyball standout at Lakewood Ranch High School is the "perfect fit for the face of Palmetto High School volleyball," Ansbro said in a press release.
Ansbro said Grosse is everything a high school looks for -- the total package -- to lead and mentor young student-athletes.
"She has the knowledge and energy that our young ladies deserve on and off the court," Ansbro said. "We snagged a quality person."
