Reynolds takes over as El Dorado’s volleyball coach


“I’m very excited. I moved to El Dorado for the volleyball program. Volleyball is my sport.

Those are the words of Amber Reynolds, who has taken over the reins of El Dorado’s volleyball program. The Lady Wildcats had their first practice under Reynolds on Monday.

Reynolds coached seventh and eighth graders last year. She was a college assistant coach in Hot Springs for six years and played volleyball at Holmes High School in San Antonio.

Reynolds replaced Derek Easter, who switched to men’s basketball.

“Coach Easter worked hard to build the program during his time as both college and university head coach. He instilled both a strong work ethic and an understanding of the fundamentals of the game” “Coach Reynolds will continue to build the program and his experience coaching in the central Arkansas region will definitely be a plus,” said athletic director Phillip Lansdell. We can’t wait to see where she can take our program.

Reynolds said the team will practice in June Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“I’m very excited about the new era, hope to build good relationships with the kids and the community and get our athletes excited about playing volleyball,” said Reynolds, who competed in Easter in the line-up. next year’s team.

“I think my style is different in that it’s more strategic and teaches girls how to play the game inside and out and be thinkers on the pitch. My number one priority is definitely the fundamentals and just exposure to more aspects of the game and getting them comfortable on the court.

The rest of the volleyball coaching staff is yet to be determined, according to Reynolds, who will take care of JV and the university.
