Byrd has a new volleyball coach and it’s one who simply has to move across town to begin work.

Centenary senior Desiree Frey will graduate in May and will take over the Lady Jackets’ talented program in replacing Michelle Adamson, who stepped down at the end of last season. 

“I’m really excited about this opportunity -- to not only be a coach, but be a head coach after graduation,” Frey told The Times. “It’s a blessing in every way.”

A native of Garland, Texas, Frey is one of the most talented volleyball players in Centenary history. She became the first Ladies volleyball player to reach 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in a career. She was also selected as an All-Conference honoree, the first Centenary player to be so honored on a non-freshman team. 

“Desiree could not be more deserving of her conference honors,” said Centenary head coach Caroline Carlton in a release. “She has worked hard both on and off the court to be successful and has accomplished so much in her time at Centenary. Although I have only been at Centenary for a small part of her career, I am thankful for what she has done for our program, and I am thrilled I had the chance to coach her.”

Byrd athletic director Mike Suggs believes Frey will move the program forward.
“She is young but she is very enthusiastic and she has been around volleyball all her life,” Suggs said. “Her background in club volleyball should also be an asset.”
Suggs said Frey will not be teaching at Byrd.
