Brooke Turner Selected As W&J Volleyball Coach
WASHINGTON, Pa. — Washington & Jefferson College Director of Athletics Bill Dukett has announced the hiring of Brooke Turner as the Presidents’ head volleyball coach.
Turner has served as the head volleyball coach at Division II West Liberty University since 2007. She inherited a program that had won four matches in the two seasons prior to her arrival and helped the Hilltoppers earn back-to-back years of double-digit victories in 2010 and 2011. Turner was also an adjunct professor at West Liberty, teaching health and physical education classes.
“We are excited to add Coach Turner to our coaching staff,” said Dukett. “Brooke was a talented player, brings head coaching experience with her and is excited for the challenge of working with our current and future players to elevate W&J volleyball back to the top of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference.”
Turner earned her bachelor’s (2004) and M.B.A. (2009) degrees from Wheeling Jesuit University. She is also currently working towards a Ph.D. degree in instructional management and leadership from Robert Morris University.
A native of Weirton, W.Va., Turner played four years of volleyball at Wheeling Jesuit and led the Cardinals to four WVIAC titles and three appearances in the NCAA Division II Tournament. The 2003 WVIAC Tournament Most Valuable Player led Wheeling Jesuit to a 139-32 record during her years on campus.
Turner graduated from Weir High School where she led the Red Riders’ volleyball team to one Class A-AA state championship.
