|LADY CUBS VOLLEYBALL ANNOUNCES NEW COACH FOR 2008|
(April 17, 2008) - - Mynor Mendoza has been named Head Women’s Volleyball Coach at Los Angeles City College. Mendoza steps in for former coach Levik Abrahams who led the Lady Cubs for the past two seasons.
Mendoza has served the past four years as Varsity Boy’s Volleyball Coach and three years as Girl’s Varsity Volleyball Coach at Manual Arts High School. He was also Director of the Starlings South Central Volleyball Club during his varsity tenure at Manual Arts.
“Mynor is a young coach on the rise and someone who has the personality and coaching experience to elevate Lady Cubs volleyball into a Conference contender relatively sooner than later,” said LA City Athletic Director Mike Miller. “Inner city volleyball is gaining momentum and Mynor is a coach who has first-hand experience and success in that particular arena. We have complete faith and confidence in his ability to promote volleyball at LA City College and throughout Los Angeles.”
Mendoza’s coaching record illustrates that success follows his every stop. His coaching career began at Manual Arts as Girl’s Junior Varsity Coach from 2002-05. He was promoted to dual-coaching duties in 2004 when he took the reins of the Boy’s Varsity program. In 2005, Manual Arts then asked him to take over the Girl’s Varsity team while remaining the Boy’s coach too.
As Girl’s head coach at Manual Arts, Mendoza led the “Toilers” to three consecutive League Championships (2005-07) that complemented two previous League titles he earned as an assistant. His three-year Girl’s varsity record of 29-1 in League and 34-8 overall ranks him with the best in Los Angeles high school volleyball coaching circles. His resurrection of the Boy’s program at Manual Arts led to a combined 24-10 League record and 32-12 overall. This includes two consecutive second-place League finishes (2005-06).
In addition to leading the Lady Cubs in 2008, Mendoza will also serve as Owner and Director of the Los Angeles Volleyball Club.
