The defending NJCAA Division III champion Rock Valley College Golden Eagles volleyball team will have a new leader for the 2013 season. Kyle Shondell has been hired to replace Abby Jenkins as the new head coach for RVC.
Shondell has been coaching for Club Fusion Volleyball in Rockford since January after serving as an assistant coach for one season for the volleyball team at Western Illinois University. At WIU, he gained valuable experience in recruiting, scouting, and training student-athletes. He was also responsible for coordinating youth clinics and summer camps.
Shondell is a graduate of Purdue University where he received a bachelor's degree in Professional Writing.
He will take over a Golden Eagles team that finished 40-8 last season on the way to winning the third national championship in the school's history. RVC has made three straight appearances at the national tournament, adding two third place finishes to last year's first place finish.
