Hamric Steps Down as Catawba Volleyball Coach
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College Director of Athletics, Larry Leckonby, has announced that Ginger Hamric has resigned her post as Head Women’s Volleyball Coach. Hamric steps down after guiding the program for 29 seasons.
Hamric posted 536 wins during her tenure at Catawba, claiming two South Atlantic Conference Championships and three SAC Tournament titles. Catawba made four NCAA II Regional appearances and advanced to the regional final in 2008. In 2001, Catawba became the first SAC school to make a regional appearance.
“I want to thank Coach Hamric for her dedication and service to Catawba College,” said Leckonby. “Her 29 years of service at one institution is almost unprecedented in college athletics. We wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors.”
Catawba surpassed 20 wins in 13 seasons under Hamric with three 30-win campaigns. The best season came in 1992 when the Lady Indians went 39-5 and set the school mark for wins in a season.
Hamric was named SAC Coach of the Year four times during her tenure. In 2008, she was inducted into the Catawba College Sports Hall of Fame. She came to Catawba in 1990 after leading Mt. Airy High School to a pair of state championships and three conference titles.
