Emma Guthrie has been named interim head volleyball coach for Welch College for the 2020 volleyball season, according to Athletic Director Greg Fawbush. Guthrie will graduate from Welch in May with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. A four-year starter for the Lady Flames, Emma was recognized as an all-regional player the past three years.
“Emma is a logical choice to lead the Lady Flames next season,” Fawbush said. “As a student athlete, she demonstrated her desire to experience both spiritual and emotional growth. As the Welch community navigates the unprecedented circumstances of completing the spring semester remotely and the ensuing limitations created for our Christian community of faith and learning, Emma’s understanding of the culture of Welch College’s athletic department will be an invaluable asset.”
Coach Fawbush will continue managing volleyball duties until Guthrie transitions into the role beginning June 1. For information about volleyball or other athletics at Welch, email Coach Fawbush at firstname.lastname@example.org.
