Chemeketa coach wins national honor - Statesman Journal

Terry McLaughlin led Storm to a 50-0 record and won the NWAACC By James Day - Statesman Journal December 11, 2008 If you turn in a 50-0 season as a community college volleyball team, people are likely to perk up and notice you. Chemeketa Community College coach Terry McLaughlin has been named national coach of the year for two-year colleges by the American Volleyball Coaches Association. McLaughlin previously was named Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges all-tournament coach and regional coach of the year. McLaughlin will receive the national honor at an awards ceremony Dec. 18 in Omaha, Neb. "I do think it is a great honor considering how many coaches at the two-year level are doing a great job at their respective campuses," said McLaughlin. McLaughlin is in his second tour with the Storm. He previously served as volleyball coach from 1988-2001, winning NWAACC titles in 1997 and 1998. His 1997 team finished 57-2 and his 1998 was 51-6, and he admits that he wasn't really planning to produce an undefeated season. "In early August, one of my players asked me during a team meeting how many matches we were going to play, and how many we would win. I told them that I would never tell them that we couldn't win them all, but 50 sure was a reach in the imagination." Win No. 50 came in the championship match of the NWAACC tournament against Walla Walla. So what is McLaughlin planning for next season? "The only encore is to do a thorough job recruiting to bring in the best student-athletes so we can try to maintain success on the court and in the classroom," McLaughlin said. McLaughlin has a 541-173 record during his Chemeketa career. He also coached at South Salem High School from 1977-87, compiling a record of 185-103. His Saxons teams made the state playoffs five times. jday@StatesmanJournal.com or (503) 399-6801
