CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston Southern head volleyball coach Christy Mooberry has announced the addition of Jordan Fish to the CSU volleyball staff for the 2016-17 season on Tuesday afternoon.
Fish joins the CSU staff after a standout career at Virginia Tech that led to an opportunity of playing professional volleyball overseas with the Amager VK-D1 in Copenhagen, Denmark over the 2015-2016 season.
"Jordan's character and motives for coaching stood out to me from the beginning and I'm excited to have her on this journey as we continue to mold the culture of the program," said Mooberry. "Jordan also brings a wealth of playing experience and while she will be helping with all aspects of the program, I'm especially excited to see her run with our setters. No doubt her skills and experience there will be a huge asset to the program. Jordan is an excellent addition to the program and I'm thrilled she is here."
Lining up as the starting setter for the Amager Volleyball Klub this season, Fish led the team to the first Final Four appearance in program history. Twice she earned MVP honors during league matches, and she was named the Co-MVP of the match versus Engelholm by the Swedish committee.
"I am excited to be given the opportunity to coach here at CSU," said Fish. "I am so thankful to be at an amazing university that shares my same values. I am very much looking forward to this upcoming season."
