NEO names Sarah Wall new Lady Norse Volleyball head coach

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College has named Sarah Wall the new head coach for NEO Lady Norse Volleyball. 

Wall graduated from Joplin Parkwood High School in 1981. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Missouri Southern State University and a master’s degree from Pittsburg State University, both in kinesiology.

She was a successful high school coach at Webb City and Carl Junction High School for more than 20 years, with almost 400 career wins. While at Carl Junction, she led her teams to six district championships, a Class 3 runner-up finish in 2013 and held a 36-0 record in the Big 8 Conference for five seasons.

She most recently served as the assistant volleyball coach for Pittsburg State University.

“We are extremely excited and fortunate to have someone like Coach Wall on our team,” said NEO Athletic Director Joe Renfro. “Her knowledge and experience for the sport will propel our teams into national championship contention, which is what we are all about here at NEO.”

Wall was inducted into the Carl Junction Athletics Hall of Fame in 2023. Her 2013 team was inducted in 2022 for being the first women’s program in school history to reach the state championship.

She is a lead coach for Gold Medal Squared summer volleyball camps and is the owner and director of Club MVP Volleyball. She also serves as a national speaker for Glazier Coaches clinics.

“I believe life goes so fast, and I can’t sit around and watch it fly by me,” said Wall. “I believe God sets your path, and I am willing to follow it every step of the way. I am so glad he led me to NEO.”

She and her husband Jesse have three children and four grandchildren.
