CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Catholic co-head volleyball coach Kristin Call has her hands full.
Not only did she take over the Irish as the season was about to begin, Call is the assistant general manager of marketing for the West Virginia Power as well.
Working for a minor league baseball organization full time often means spending half the day at the ballpark, but adding on her new responsibilities with the Catholic volleyball team certainly makes things tougher on Call.
Call, along with fellow co-coach Angela Beblo, are technically the third and fourth coach this season that the Irish, one of the top programs in the state, has had this year alone.
Lindsay Kuncher resigned as head coach long before the season was set to begin and Leisha Salyer was hired to take over on June 1. However, she accepted a position at West Virginia State University soon thereafter, causing her to leave the post as well.
Enter Call, an assistant coach for the Catholic volleyball team since 2006, along with Beblo, who also has been with the Irish for several years. Both were involved in the state titles Catholic won in 2009 and 2010.
"Leisha had come in but her situation changed, which didn't allow her to keep the coaching position," Call said. "It was about a month ago close to the start of the season, and now Angela Beblo and myself are now the co-head coaches."
Call admitted the time constraints have been tough, especially with her full-time position with the Power.
"It's difficult, I'm not going to lie," Call said. "It's a lot of time management and a lot of teamwork with Angela. The issue was the time commitment with both our jobs. It's a little bit tough to commit fully to that. To be able to do it together has helped. It's been collective effort to make it happen."
Call indicated her and Beblo being involved with the team for years has made the transition smoother.
"It absolutely helps having a history with the school and knowing the staff and the AD (athletic director Bill Gillispie)," Call said. "It's great knowing some of the players that have been there a few years now. It makes things a lot easier."
Gina Marks and Sierra Portillo will be counted on heavily, being the team's only two seniors. The Irish don't have any juniors, leaving sophomores and freshmen to fill the rest of the roster.
Catholic opens its season on Tuesday in a tri-match at Greater Beckley Christian against the hosts and Nicholas County.
