Born and Raised in Imperial, MO, Ahna played softball for 8 years as a pitcher and first baseman.

Ahna has played middle, right side and outside. Ahna has coached for 7 years, including the freshman boys and girls teams at Seckman and this will be her 5th year with Team Momentum.

Currently working as a TA at Don Earl Early Childhood, Ahna one day plans to teach physically impaired children just like the amazing children she works with now.
Coaching Philosophy: “Your team is your family. They are the one’s who will be picking you up during the game and when you are feeling down on yourself. You must play with as much intensity, energy, and love for the game as you feel for the game or you won’t have a successful outcome. I love this sport and I hope to pass on a little bit of my passion for it on to my players.”

Alex grew up in Wildwood, MO, and went to Lafayette High School. Alex describes himself:
“I played baseball for 8 years before ultimately switching to volleyball. I instantly fell in love with the game and the fast-paced action. After my first season, I joined the Missouri Thunder club team. I’ve played numerous positions including middle, right side, and setter. After high school, I went onto Mizzou and received my bachelors of elementary education. I decided I wanted to start coaching after college and this is now 4th year as a coach for Team Momentum. Alex is also coaching at Fox High School. Teaching has helped me to better motivate and get the most out of the players on our team. I am the youngest of three with an older brother and an older sister. I love watching the Cardinals, Blues, and NFL football.”
Alex’s Coaching Philosophy: “In order to help players grow you must start by building a strong relationship.”
