Legendary local coach and Santa Clarita volleyball stalwart Ray Sanchez returns to the LAVA Girls coaching staff, eager to add another successful chapter to his many volumes worth of excellent work. Ray is the current Head Varsity Girl’s Coach for Valencia High School, a post he has held for more than a decade and where under his guidance the squad has won twelve Foothill League Championships since 2001, including a run of 10 consecutive years. Yes, you read both of those statistics correctly, 12 titles and a run of 10 consecutive years. During that span Valencia, under Ray’s watchful eye, yielded a record number of All-League selections, while Ray himself earned multiple Foothill League Coach of the Year awards.
Club-wise, Ray is also no stranger to success, having coached nearly all age levels over a multi-year career than includes a pair of Santa Clarita-based clubs that acted as the forerunners of LAVA North, Synergy Volleyball Club and SMBC North, where with the latter his 16-1’s team in 2011 was a consistent presence in Division I of the SCVA. Now with LAVA Girls as one of the top coaches for LAVA North—indeed, Ray is one of two LAVA North Master Coaches, responsible with oversight of all coaches in the program in addition to his own team as Head Coach.
