Sierra High graduate Eryn Bowers is back at her alma mater as both teacher and coach.
Athletic director Andrew Lee announced Monday in a statement that she has been hired as the new head coach for the Timberwolves girls volleyball team. She is just the third varsity coach in school history, following Tevani Liotard (1995-2009) and Trinity Johnson (2010-18). Both Bowers and Johnson played for Liotard.
“Looking forward to continue with what we strive here at Sierra with ‘Character Counts,’” Bowers said in the statement. “These young ladies will be led to train today and be strong tomorrow.”
Bowers began her coaching career at East Union, where she headed the varsity squad from 2007-10. The Lancers qualified for the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs twice in her four years there.
As a Sierra student, she was named Senior All-Around Athlete and continued to play volleyball at Columbia College for two years. Bowers went on to graduate from Stanislaus State. She returned to Sierra in 2017 and teaches business.
“Coach Bowers is an incredible addition to our Athletics program,” Lee stated. “She demonstrates high standards and has earned a reputation for getting things done. On top of that, she is engaged into the school and community in multiple facets.
“With infectious energy and positive attitude, Coach Bowers will be a phenomenal mentor for our student athletes.”
