Dunton named Snider volleyball coach

July 24, 2018

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Accomplished volleyball player Andrew Dunton has taken over the Snider High school volleyball program as head coach.

 

This is the first high school head coaching job for Dunton, who was born in Fort Wayne, grew up in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and returned to play college volleyball at IPFW.

 

“It’s an honor and a privilege to get a head coaching job up here,” Dunton, who replaces Brooke Sellhorn, tells ParkviewSportsMedicine.com. “I have high expectations for (the Snider players), and they have high expectations for me.”

 

Dunton played for the VolleyDons from 1995 to 1997, and was a member of the U.S. Virgin Islands men’s national team from 1996 to 2012. He also coached the U.S. Virgin Island boys national team. After moving back to Fort Wayne in 2012, Dunton joined the coaching staff at Empowered Volleyball Academy.

 

With a roster of 5 seniors and 18 sophomores, Dunton says the young Snider team will rely on height and strength. He hopes the varsity opportunity for many of the girls will serve as a launching pad for growth of the program.

Snider is one of 26 high schools in Northeast Indiana and Northwest Ohio that partners with Parkview Sports Medicine's integrated team for athletic training and other medical services for Panther student-athletes.
