This year, Roseville High School has hired new varsity volleyball coach Kelly Hart. Hart was hired after last year’s head coach Travis Vincenzini stepped down. Vincenzini led his team to a 14-12 record and a trip to the playoffs, where they lost in the first round to the Whitney Wildcats.
Prior to Hart coming to Roseville, she coached JV volleyball at Lincoln High School for five years and coached club volleyball from ages 12-16.
The girls volleyball team will play 25 games this year, including out of town tournaments in Reno, Nevada and Davis, California. Hart believes the team will be successful due to all the games the team will have this year.
“We’re going to have a great season,” Hart said. “We have a lot of volleyball to play, lots of matches and the girls are going to get a ton of games to play.”
When Hart made the move to Roseville she brought her husband to join the coaching staff as well. According to Hart she brought her husband along with her due to his experiences as a coach and to better the girls.
“I brought over a veteran coach,” Hart said. “He will help the girls with dynamics and many different plays and drills as well.”
Hart’s husband, Keith Hart, believes the group of girls have a lot of talent and will have a great season.
“We have a great group of girls with a lot of talent. I think with the girls we have we will have a very successful season,” Keith said.
