Notre Dame Prep Saints have hired Amanda Burbridge to run the volleyball program at the Catholic preparatory high school, located at 9701 E. Bell Road in Scottsdale. Burbridge will take over as varsity girls volleyball head coach for the 2018-19 season.
Burbridge has 14 years of volleyball coaching experience. She opened Revolution Volleyball Academy in Phoenix six years ago, where she trains volleyball athletes from age 9 to18. Previously, she coached at other volleyball academies in Arizona.
As a former Arizona State University Sun Devil, Burbidge was named most valuable player and team captain in 1998, 1999 and 2000. She holds three records at ASU, including most kills in a season with 599. She was named first team All PAC-10 Conference all four years while attending Arizona State University. In 2010, she was inducted into the ASU Hall-of- Fame.
"I am excited to work with the players at Notre Dame Prep. I already know them and have a relationship with them because I was the assistant coach last year under Coach Sara Fox," Burbridge said. "I love the culture at NDP and the sense of family that is evident here. I'm looking forward to a great season."
Mrs. Fox has stepped down from coaching to spend more time with her young family, remaining as a math teacher and an integral part of the NDP Gonzaga Program,
