Coach one win from 500

Jane Peterson, Central Lakes College volleyball head coach, is one win away from achieving a milestone: 500 wins. She now has a career record of 499-224. She said of approaching milestone: “People ask me all the time, ‘How much longer are you going to coach?’ because
so many other women stop coaching when their families are young or when they get
tired. But I feel like I am at the peak of curiosity in my craft – not just
the coaching of volleyball skills, but of sports psychology, motivation, group
dynamics, motor learning, how teenage brains work, how talent is developed. All
these things I am still very curious about.” Jane will be honored following the home match Wednesday vs. Fond Du Lac in a ceremony to include a plaque presentation, volleyball alumni, and reception. The match starts at 6:30 p.m.
