Coach Sarah Castillo - 13 Teal
Asst. Coach Taryn Alexander
I am Coach Sarah and have been in love with the sport of volleyball since I was about eight years old when my older sister started playing. I began by joining youth leagues around the age of nine and went on to play in middle school, high school and two club teams for a few years. I started out as an outside and right-side hitter, but unfortunately, I suffered two major knee injuries in high school and that changed my position on the court. In college I played on indoor coed and women’s leagues while also officiating coed leagues and club tournaments. In addition, I coached a team of 11s and assisted with a team of 13s in West Texas during my time in college. Last year was my first year with EMV and I assisted on 12 Black. I am very excited to start my second season with EMV as the head coach for 13 Teal!
Hi my name is Taryn Alexander and I have been playing competitive volleyball for over 8 years as a Middle Blocker and Right Side. This is my second year coaching at EMV and I am extremely excited to help grow players not only in their volleyball skills but also in their passion for the sport. In my career I have played club, sand, lettered 3 times in High School, and also was given the opportunity to play collegiate volleyball at Concordia University Texas. Currently I am working on my Nursing degree and am looking forward to this upcoming season!
