Mayes Wins No. 1,000, Joins Elite Group
Brenda Mayes of Muscle Shoals High School recently joined an elite group of prep volleyball coaches when her Lady Trojans defeated Colbert County 3-0 in the semifinals of the Colbert County volleyball tournament.
The victory was the 1,000th of her career – all at Muscle Shoals. She joins five other AHSAA coaches who have reached the milestone plateau.
Retired Hazel Green coach Glenda Wright (1,303-505) leads the state list, followed by retired McGill-Toolen coach Becky Dickinson (1,273-130). The others are active coaches Tammy Richardson of Oak Mountain, Julie Sinclair of Montgomery Academy and Ann Schilling of Bayside Academy.
Mayes, who has a 1006-303 career record heading into Thursday’s sub-state volleyball playoff round, has served on the AHSAA Central Board of Control, the District Athletic Board, the Volleyball Coaches Committee, and the AD/Coaches Association Advisory Committee.
