Megan Shaff has submitted her resignation at Columbus North volleyball coach, Bull Dogs athletic director Jeff Hester announced Friday (Nov. 11).
Shaff guided the CN volleyball program for seven seasons, compiling a 142-96 record highlighted by an undefeated Conference Indiana championship in 2008. The team's overall record that season was 25-9, the best of Shaff's tenure.
She will remain at Columbus North High School as a health and physical education teacher as well as the P.E. Department coordinator.
"It has been a great seven years, and I have enjoyed coaching each and every girl who has come through our program," Shaff said. "It would be easy for me to continue coaching here as I love the game and am challenged each and every season to improve and be the best for the players in the program. However, it was time for me to make the hard decision to move all of those efforts to my own family."
Shaff, a graduate of Valparaiso University, became the Columbus North varsity volleyball coach in 2005. That first season, her team went 19-15 overall and 6-3 in conference play (when Decatur Central and Martinsville still were part of CI).
CN volleyball followed with records of 17-16 and 4-3 in 2006, then posted 24-10 and 6-1 marks in 2007. The Bull Dogs produced the program's best season of the Shaff era in 2008, then followed with respective 20-15/4-3 and 19-15/4-3 records in 2009 and 2010. This fall, Columbus North went 18-16 overall and 5-2 in league play.
"I will miss working with the girls in the weight room and on the court, but I will remain one of their biggest supporters," Shaff said. "I wish all the players and the program all the best in the future."
Anyone interested in the open position should contact Hester at the CNHS Athletic Office as soon as possible.
