Coach Abigail Warren

Abigail Warren has been named the new head coach of the Lady Flames volleyball team. A graduate of John Brown University, Warren spent two years as a missionary/teacher at Faith Academy in Manila, Philippines. She earned her teaching degree from Welch in December 2017.

“Coach Warren was an exceptional basketball and volleyball player in high school,” Fawbush said. “She was also offered a full-ride volleyball scholarship to Mineral Area College. After one year, she transferred to John Brown University where she was given a full basketball scholarship. As a player, she was awarded the Christian Character and Scholar Athlete awards. While serving at Faith Academy, she coached their volleyball team. She has also been a volleyball referee on several levels.” Warren currently serves in the athletic department at Hendersonville Christian Academy as a coach and aids in high school weight training.

“It will be exciting to see Coach Warren’s vision implemented in the volleyball program at Welch College,” Fawbush continued.” I believe she strongly embodies the three core values of commitment, character, and competition of Welch College athletics.”

Meet Coach Katie Bryan

Katie Bryan, assistant women’s basketball coach, has been named head coach of the Welch College Lady Flames basketball team. Miss Bryan graduated from Welch in 2012 with an associate’s degree in Biology, then transitioned into the nursing program Welch has with Belmont University.

Katie graduated in 2014 as a registered nurse with a B.S.N. degree from Belmont. She was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. She is currently employed in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit at Centennial Medical Center in Nashville.

Coach Bryan said, “My love of basketball came at an early age from playing in middle school, high school, and as a freshman at King University in Bristol, Tennessee.” After playing at Welch, she shared coaching duties with her father, Larry Bryan, before being named head coach for the 2016-2017 season.

“I am excited to further the disciplines of the Lady Flames as basketball players, but also in their daily walk with Jesus Christ. I want to continue building a program that will represent the college and our Lord in a positive way and to attract other students to Welch,” exclaimed Bryan.
