SOUTH BEND - Raymond HS has hired Julie Jewel as its new varsity head volleyball coach. Jewel replaces departed head coach Bob Swogger, who was at the helm for nine years.
"I'm excited for this opportunity," Jewell told the Herald Friday afternoon. "Raymond has had a strong volleyball program and had a lot of success last year. With the current athletes in the program, there is a strong foundation for continued success. The returning players are good competitors and have great attitudes. There is great community support for the program. It is a great opportunity."
Raymond HS Athletic Director Mike Tully offered his comments to the Herald about the hiring of Jewell.
