Ashland VB coach resigns; SOU upends No. 4 Concordia

Jodee Scott has resigned as Ashland High's head volleyball coach to pursue her teaching credentials in Florida, the school announced Friday.

Scott took over the progam from Josh Rohlfing in 2007 and led the Grizzlies to three top-four finishes at the Class 5A state tournament.

"Jodee is a class act in every way and has been an outstanding representative for our school," Ashland High athletics director Karl Kemper said in a press release. "She has the perfect balance of tenderness and toughness with kids. She is knowledgeable volleyball person with great leadership abilities. She is a perfect role model for teenage girls."

Under Scott, the Grizzlies placed third in 2007, fourth in 2008 and third in 2009, twice losing in the semifinals to eventual state champion Crook County.

Scott also led the Grizzlies to three consecutive undefeated Southern Sky Conference seasons, a span that included 24 straight league wins, most in straight games.

"She will be missed and we hope she will return some day to rejoin the Grizzlies," Kemper added.
