The Cuero Record
Chelsie Lemley brings with herself a combination of NCAA Division I volleyball playing experience and a championship pedigree, as she becomes the new head coach of the Lady Gobbler volleyball program. While at New Braunfels High School, Lemley was a member of the UIL (University Interscholastic League) 4A 2005 state championship volleyball team.
She then played four years of collegiate volleyball at Texas State and graduated from there in 2011.
Not only did she win a championship as a high school player, but she also was a coach on the team who nearly won a state title.
“I assisted in coaching the 2016 Navarro High School volleyball team to the UIL 4A state tournament,” Lemley said.
Now in her ninth year of teaching and coaching, Lemley brings a variety of coaching experiences.
“I am fortunate enough to have been at places where I have coached almost every girl's sport,” she said.
Along with making the move to Cuero, it has come in the midst of a trying time brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
“COVID-19 has definitely been challenging,” Lemley said. “This is a time where we are forced to be reactive instead of proactive because it is ever changing. It is not a position that we like to be in as teachers and coaches.”
