Ali Patterson-Williams
Head Coach   17's team


This is my fourth year coaching for Thunder. I started playing volleyball competitively when I was 9 years old and have been playing ever since. I was blessed to play college volleyball for Truman State University from 2012 to 2016. I was a starting Outside Hitter my Freshman year and then moved back to my favorite position and was a starting Middle Blocker the remaining three years. During my time at Truman State I earned many awards, but the following are my most proud accomplishments: All-American my Sophomore and Junior year, First-Team All Conference and All Region Honors for 3 years in a row, and GLVC Student Athlete of the Year for all women sports in our Region my Senior year. I helped lead my team to a Conference Championship my Junior year and set many school records during my time at Truman. Now, I love teaching all of the skills I have learned to my players and not only helping them become better, well rounded athletes and volleyball players, but also helping them grow their love for the game!
