April 20, 2018

Coaching and competing at the highest level in the sport, three players and two coaches currently listed within the 2018 USA Beach National Team program have direct ties back to the LMU volleyball program.

 Current head coaches, John Mayer (beach) and Aaron Mansfield (indoor), are both involved -with Mayer holding a spot on the Men’s Beach National Training Team. Mansfield, who will enter his second year leading the Lions in 2018, has been named a coach for Billy Allen and Ryan Doherty as they eye a spot in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

 Also suiting up for Team USA on the beach are Emily Day and Betsi Flint. Day is currently listed on the A2 team, while Flint, an assistant coach with LMU beach volleyball, is on the Women’s Beach National Training Team. Not only are the two both former players for the Lions, but they will join forces this year as #TeamLMU on the AVP, as their previous pairings got a shake-up earlier this month.

 Joining Mansfield in the coaching ranks within the USA Beach program is LMU assistant coach Jackson Metichecchia, who will help guide the pairing of Brooke Sweat and Lauren Fendrick.
