The College of Southern Maryland Lady Hawks welcome volleyball head coach Ashley Wolfe back to the same college where as a player she earned All-American Honorable Mention from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
“To have a coach who knows the community college system as well as Ashley is an asset. She understands what it takes to be a successful student-athlete—the balancing act of classes and games—because she did it herself,” said CSM Athletics Coordinator Nick Williams.
Wolfe graduated in 2008 from Patuxent High School where she played junior varsity and varsity volleyball as a middle hitter/blocker. She earned an associate degree in criminal justice from CSM in 2010 and transferred to Webber International University, Florida, where she continued her academic pursuits as a student-athlete. She earned a bachelor’s degree in security management in 2012 and works for the Navy at Patuxent River Naval Air Station.
Wolfe has coached five teams with several clubs including Southern Maryland Juniors, Bay Area Volleyball Academy, IMPACT Volleyball and Southern Maryland Volleyball Club.
“Ashley was a great student athlete here at CSM and is a wonderful caring person,” said CSM Director of Student Life and Athletics Michelle Ruble, Wolfe’s former volleyball coach. “I was drawn to her drive and determination and I know she will transfer the qualities and passion she had as a player to her new role as a coach. She has a quiet demeanor overall, but is a fierce competitor and her coaching skills are impressive.”
