MEET THE COACH: Poth embraces opportunity as Lady Cub coach

in Volleyball

CLIFTON – Taking on her first high school volleyball head coaching job, Clifton’s Paige Poth enters the season excited about the opportunity.

“I was ready to be a head coach, and I grew up in a small town and loved the culture,” Poth said. “I was raised in it when it came to high school sports. Here at Clifton, it’s very similar. We have a very supportive community for our programs.”

From Pleasanton, Poth graduated from Tarleton State University in 2013 and went on to serve as an assistant coach at Poteet (2014-16) and New Braunfels (2016-19). Poth inherits a Lady Cub squad that finished with a 9-29 overall record, 2-12 in district in 2018.

 “Upon meeting the girls, I knew that Clifton was the right choice,” Poth said. “The girls were fired up about the new season, and it was only May. They came into the gym open-minded, and were very coachable.

 “I think we have great potential this season,” Poth said. “The numbers in the summer were always great. The girls are very hard working, and they are hungry to win and do better. I’ve never met a more coachable group of kids. I was very impressed and pleased with the amount of progress we made in such a short time, and it excites me to see where we go this season.”
