West High volleyball coach Bresnahan resigns


For the first time in more than two decades, there will be a new leader of the West High volleyball team.

It was announced Wednesday that Kathy Bresnahan has resigned her head coaching position at West High after 22 years leading the volleyball program.

Bresnahan compiled a 671-205 record in 26 seasons as a head coach, the last 22 years coming at West.

She won seven Mississippi Valley Conference championships and led West to the state tournament eight times.

West appeared in three consecutive Class 4A state title games from 2009-2011, winning state titles in 2010 and 2011.

Bresnahan was twice named the Class 4A Volleyball Coach of the Year and in 2011 was named national Coach of the Year by the website prepvolleyball.com.

“We are thankful for the dedication that coach Bresnahan has given to West High and the volleyball program,” West athletic director Scott Kibby said in a news release. “Under her leadership, we have had consistent success and multiple championships and Coach Bresnahan is a great teacher of the game.”

West went 26-10 last season, falling in the regional semifinal in five sets to Cedar Rapids Jefferson.

The coaching position will be advertised early next week.

“We fully anticipate attracting an outstanding pool of candidates to work with the outstanding student athletes that we have at West,” Kibby said in the release.
