First year with Thunder. My name is Ali Tomlin and I am passionate about teaching and coaching! I currently teach 7th grade ELA in Pleasant Hill School District. I graduated from Blue Springs in 2011 and the University of Central Missouri in 2016. During my high school years I played multiple seasons with Invasion and had several unique clinic opportunities through the University of Missouri and University of Nebraska. I attended Longview and Avila University on a volleyball scholarship before having to cut my college career short due to multiple knee injuries. Overall I have five years of coaching experience. I coached club at Invasion and Elite and have two years middle school coaching experience at Lee's Summit and Lexington. I will be coaching middle school volleyball for Pleasant Hill this 2020 school year.
