Josie (middle) was named West Region player of the year on Saturday. Sara (right) is the head coach of the Blue Jays, who have qualified for the state tournament in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history.

All in the family: Hegerles, volleyball go hand-in-hand


On Sunday night, Jon, Sara and Josie Hegerle — the head coaches of the Jimmies and Blue Jays, and the West Region player of the year, respectively —were on the couch with the two youngest daughters Grace and Edie watching film in preparation for the state tournament.

It’s not all volleyball all the time for this family, but it’s close.

“Just another night at the Hegerle house,” Sara joked. “Well, we’re probably dorks, but it’s always kind of been that way.”
