Brittany Newberry recently took over the Hendrix College Volleyball program as Head Coach for the 2018 season. We are a private, NCAA Division III school located in Conway, Arkansas that competes in the Southern Athletic Association. The 2018 season will be her first at the helm, but she takes over a very successful program with three conference championships from 2014-2016 and a NCAA Final Four appearance in 2015.
Prior to being named Head Coach at Hendrix College, Newberry served as the assistant volleyball coach at Mississippi State for two years (2015 & 2016). In her first season she helped lead the Bulldogs to a 17-15 record, posting the first winning season at State since 2006. The 17 wins marked the most for MSU since 2006, while State's six SEC wins were the most since winning seven conference matches in 2011. In her second year, Newberry helped the Bulldogs set a new program record with the most home wins in a season with eleven in 2016.
Before her time at Mississippi State Newberry was an assistant coach for the University for Central Arkansas volleyball team from 2012 through 2015. She helped coach the Sugar Bears to a combined 46-6 conference record where they made two consecutive NCAA Tournaments appearances and won back-to-back Southland Conference regular season and tournament championships.
