COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Feb. 9, 2015) – USA Volleyball has announced that ETSU volleyball head coach Lindsey Devine will serve as an assistant coach for the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Volleyball Team (GYNT) for a fourth consecutive season.
Devine will be alongside legendary head coach Jim Stone as the GYNT will represent the United States at the biennial 2015 FIVB Volleyball Girls’ Youth World Championship being held Aug. 7-16 in Lima, Peru. Team USA qualified for the World Championship after finishing with the silver medal at the 2014 NORCECA Women’s U18 Continental Championship in Costa Rica.
The GYNT is the highest level of programming for players born in 1998 or 1999.
Coach Devine has been successful on a national level as she began her coaching duties for USA Volleyball in the summer of 2012. Devine, who coached with Jim Stone, took the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Team to Pula, Croatia to compete in the 2012 European Challenge.
In the summer of 2013, Devine rejoined Coach Stone for a second straight year, as the Buccaneer leader was appointed an assistant coach for the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Team. Devine spent time in Colorado Springs, Colo. and Anaheim, Calif., helping select the team before taking part in the World Championships in Thailand. While in Thailand, the U.S. made history by winning the silver medal, marking the first time the team had ever medaled at the championships.
In 2014, Devine helped coach the U.S. Women’s National Team to a gold medal at the NORCECA World Championship Qualification Tournament. In addition, Devine added to her medal count as she coached the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Team to a silver medal at the NORCECA Women’s U-18 Continental Championship this past July.
Devine, ETSU’s all-time winningest coach with 204 career victories, just wrapped up her 12th season with the Buccaneers.
