Madison Richtmyer Named Assistant Women’s Volleyball Coach

UMW Sports Press Release:

- Head Coach Katie Lovett has announced the hiring of Bulldog Volleyball

alumni Madison Richtmyer as the new Assistant Volleyball Coach.

Richtmyer joins the Bulldogs from Whitehall, Mont. where she most recently served as the Head Volleyball Coach at Whitehall High School. She led the Trojans as the head varsity coach for the last two seasons and made an appearance in the district tournament. She has also coached in the Mountain One Volleyball Club organization.

“We were fortunate to bring Coach Richtmyer into the Whitehall coaching staff on the coattails

of her collegiate career at Western. Her experience as a player was of great benefit to our high school program. Now, I am very happy for her to come full circle and return to her alma mater as an experienced coach (though I am sad to see her leave our coaching ranks here). She will be a great addition to the Bulldogs’ team.” Whitehall Athletic Director Brian Beebe stated.

Richtmyer began her collegiate career at Montana Western in 2016. She played in a total of 55 games as a setter, totaling 598 assists, 268 digs, and averaged 4.4 assists per set across her career. Prior to becoming a Bulldog, Richtmyer was a 2016 graduate of Helena High School where she was a two-time second team all-conference selection and a second team all-state selection.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Coach Richtmyer as she has launched her coaching

career in Whitehall. She has a solid knowledge of the game and she pushes her athletes to

achieve at their highest possible level. I know she will do a fantastic job for the Bulldogs and I

look forward to watching her career flourish.” Beebe continued.

“I have known Madison since I coached her my first season here at Western. She has always had a great mind for the game and she was able to grow her knowledge from a coaching viewpoint during her time as a club coach and the head coach at Whitehall. She brings great experience and has a lot of knowledge of the Montana volleyball community. With Madison being a Western graduate, and being a part of the Dillon community for a long time, she will be a great asset in fostering the growing volleyball culture in southwest Montana. As well as, helping grow our community outreach and alumni relations.” Head Coach Katie Lovett said.
