Volleyball: Lake Dallas Hires Creekview Coach

Volleyball: Lake Dallas Hires Creekview Coach

Lake Dallas has hired Angel Mauterer as its new volleyball coach.

Scott Head, Lake Dallas’ athletic director, confirmed the news in March and added that he couldn’t be any more excited about the hire. Mauterer, 40, has been a coach since 2000 and spent the last 12 seasons at Carrollton Creekview High School. She comes to Lake Dallas after guiding Creekview to the playoffs in each of the last 10 seasons.

The news on Mauterer’s hire was first reported on March 29 by the Denton Record-Chronicle.

“It’s hard to say goodbye to all the kids and the people at Creekview, but I welcome the opportunity to help another program be successful,” Mauterer told the Denton Record-Chronicle.

Mauterer replaces Heather Van Noy, who in January was hired as Guyer’s coach after six seasons at Lake Dallas. In that stretch, Van Noy compiled a 143-91 record while leading the Lady Falcons to the playoffs four times. Van Noy spent the first six seasons of her coaching career as an assistant at Guyer before leaving for Lake Dallas in 2011.

Those are hard shoes to fill, but Mauterer has had her share of success as well. Along with taking Creekview to the playoffs in each of the last 10 seasons, Mauterer has guided the program to two district titles. In fact, Creekview beat Lake Dallas in a district tiebreaker this past season to finish second in District 14-5A.

Prior to Creekview, Mauterer coached at three different schools. Her best run during that stretch was at St. Mary’s Dominican in New Orleans when she took them to the state final in 2000 and the semifinals in 2001.

“It’s always good to have stability,” Head told the DRC. “I like to see when someone has been somewhere for a long time and has helped establish a program. Heather did that when she was here, and I think Angel is going to do a great job as well.”
