DeKALB – The vision of former DeKalb volleyball star Courtney Wagner has carried her to success on the court for a long time.
Now the goal is for that vision to contribute to revitalizing Western Illinois volleyball.
The second-year graduate assistant coach for the Leathernecks was well on her way to moving away from the sport until Ben Staupe, her former coach at Wisconsin-Whitewater, came calling.
“After I graduated, I wanted to go into something different. I wanted to try something new, but volleyball just came right back to me,” Wagner said. “The opportunity came, and I took it.”
