Danielle NewsomOWENSBORO, Ky. (8/17/19) — The Kentucky Wesleyan College volleyball program has announced the addition of Danielle Newsom to its coaching staff.

Newsom will be responsible for assisting in all facets of the Kentucky Wesleyan volleyball program including player development, practice plans and recruiting.

A veteran coach, Newsom brings 13 years of coaching experience to Wesleyan. She has been a club coach in three different states, including most recently the Typhoons of the Audubon Volleyball Association in Owensboro. Previously Newsom has worked with the West Alabama Juniors in Fayette, Alabama and the Summit Volleyball Club in Lees Summit, Missouri. She has also held the position of Assistant Head Coach of Fayette County High School.

"We are excited to have Dani join our program," said Kentucky Wesleyan Head Coach Eric Hagan. "She is a high energy person and it spreads when you're around her. She brings a lot of experience as both a coach and a player. I have learned from her as much as she is learning from myself and our team. She has already helped develop our players in the offseason."

An accomplished player, Newsom has traveled the globe competing since she was 16 years old. She and her husband Trey have spent the past few years traveling throughout the United States competing as well.

Danielle and Trey were married in September 2016. The couple welcomed their first child, Archer, on August 1, 2017. Newsom is a 2012 graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City where she earned a bachelors degree in Liberal Arts.
