Germantown, Tennessee--January 21, 2021--Becky Pendleton of Houston High School has been selected as the 2019-2020 Tennessee Girls Volleyball Coach of the year by the National Federation of State High School Associations.
According to the NFHS Coaches Association, " Becky was specifically nominated by the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association as the most deserving recipient for this honor". The NFHS selects the coach of the year based upon coaching performance in the 2019-2020 schoolyear, lifetime community involvement, and philosophy of coaching.
The TSSAA named Houston High School Volleyball Coach Becky Pendleton the 2019-20 Coach of the Year.
Since taking over in 2002, Pendleton has an essential piece of the culture of excellence in the Athletic Department. Her willing service to her players on and off the court is evidenced in 14 consecutive years of the program earning a trip to the State Tournament, and close to 70 former players have earned scholarships to further their volleyball careers.
“Coach Pendleton’s influence goes so much farther than the court, her dedication to her players and our community have been unmeasurable,” said Houston High Athletic Director Chad Becker.
Last year, Houston Volleyball played in the State Championship game for the first time in school history.
