James Wood High School has named Adrienne Patrick its new varsity volleyball coach following the resignation of Jaime Terenzi. In Terenzi’s only year coaching the Colonels, James Wood won the Northwestern District Championship, was the Region 4C Runner-up and earned a berth in the state tournament. The squad finished with a record of 23-5. Patrick is a 2005 James Wood High School graduate who has coached the school’s JV volleyball team the past three seasons and accumulated a record of 57-6.

James Wood High School Coordinator of Student Activities Craig Woshner says, “Coach Terenzi did an outstanding job last year leading our team to its first state tournament berth since 2016. Unfortunately, she made the difficult decision to resign due to family commitments that she felt were taking priority over her ability to coach. We are very pleased Coach Patrick was ready to move up to coach the varsity team. She has worked with the veteran players on the team and understands the culture of our school since she’s both an alumna and teacher here.”

Patrick says, “It’s both humbling and exciting to be named the new volleyball coach at James Wood, particularly since I played here as a student. Since earning my degree at Shepherd University and starting to teach at James Wood in the fall of 2016, I’ve been involved with the school’s volleyball program. I’m looking forward to the upcoming season, working to further develop our players on and off the court, and building upon the program’s success.”
