York welcomes new women’s volleyball coach

The York College Athletic Department is pleased to announce the hiring of Ashley Greene, the new women’s volleyball head coach at York College.

Greene comes to York after a stellar playing career at SUNY Old Westbury, where she graduated in 2011 with a degree in secondary mathematics education and made the dean’s list for three straight years.

A three-year member on the women’s volleyball team, Greene earned Skyline Conference Second-Team All-Star honors in 2010 and 2011 after leading the Panthers in kills and ranking second in hitting percentage both seasons.

Over the past year, Greene has also served as the head coach of the Performance Volleyball Club in Long Island, as well as the assistant coach for the Bay Shore Middle School team.

“I’m really excited,” said Greene. “I have a lot of new ideas and I think people will be surprised about what we will accomplish.”

The Cardinals will open the 2012 season with a home doubleheader Sept. 5 against Yeshiva University and St. Joseph’s College (L.I.) beginning at 6 p.m.
