Tougaloo College graduate, Megan Besecker, is coming back home to head the LHS Volleyball Program.
“I’m so excited to get back home and start this journey. We have a great group of girls, and I am looking forward to developing these student-athletes and working with them to get to their goals.”
Besecker played four years of college volleyball where she led her team at Garden City Community College in hitting, kills, aces and finished second in team digs. After graduating with her Associates of Science degree, Besecker transferred to Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi. In 2017 Besecker was named Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Newcomer of the Year, First Team All-Conference and received GCAC Attacker of the Week four times. Besecker completed her college volleyball career at Tougaloo as NAIA Honorable Mention Southeast All-Region Team, First Team All-Conference, GCAC Attacker of the Week three times, and Defender of the Week once. The Tougaloo Bulldogs finished their season as Conference Runner-ups. Besecker received the David M. Halbrook Award for her service, leadership, academic, and athletic achievements.
“My plans for this summer are to help prepare the girls for this upcoming season. We have some really good athletes with great potential. We will go to camps and hold some of our own camps for the girls to gain some experience, have fun, and get in as much training as possible.”
She will begin filing her coaching staff for the upcoming season and looks forward to working with the students, the staff of Liberal High School and the Liberal community.
“We are very excited to welcome Megan back to Liberal High School. She returns to us with a great deal of knowledge, a strong work ethic, and a passion for LHS,” Principal Ashley Kappelmann said. “We have no doubt she will do a tremendous job.
