Bordelon named

Idaho volleyball

assistant coach

MOSCOW — The 2018 Idaho volleyball staff was completed on Monday with the addition of assistant coach Renee Bordelon. Head coach Debbie Buchanan announced the hiring before the Vandals opened fall camp.

“I am really excited to have Renee join our coaching staff,” Buchanan said. “Renee has great playing and coaching experience and has a love for the game. She has wanted to get back into college coaching so this is the perfect opportunity for all of us.”

Bordelon was set to become the head coach at Coeur d’Alene High. She’ll be replaced by Carly Curtis.

No stranger to the Palouse, Bordelon played two seasons at Washington State (2008-09). In her first season, she was WSU’s setter in 84 of the team’s 103 sets. She was the Cougar’s setter for all 111 sets her senior year, averaging 11.47 assists per set. Bordelon led the Cougars to a top-25 ranking (21st) as well as their first trip back to the NCAA Tournament after a seven-year absence. She totaled 35 assists in WSU’s first-round tournament-loss to Northern Iowa. In her two years, she totaled 2,093 assists which at the time was sixth best all-time at WSU. Bordelon was also named Pac-10 Player of the Week on Sept. 8, 2009.

Bordelon, a Lake City High product, spent three seasons (2012-14) as a volunteer assistant at Gonzaga. Her responsibilities included coaching the team’s setters, managing video and tracking the team’s stats. Bordelon got her master’s degree from Gonzaga in organizational leadership with an emphasis on team building. After leaving Gonzaga, Bordelon coached at the club and high school level.

Randles named AD

at Coeur d’Alene High

Mike Randles, who has served as an assistant principal the previous two years, has been named the athletic director at Coeur d’Alene High for the 2018/2019 school year.

“Mr. Randles has over 20 years of coaching experience, which combined with his strong reputation as a building administrator make him a great fit to move into this role,” Coeur d’Alene High principal Bret Heller said.

Randles taught and coached in Sandpoint for 23 years before joining the Coeur d’Alene staff. He primarily taught English at Sandpoint High, and coached multiple sports, including head wrestling coach for nearly 20 years.

Randles replaces Mike Lindquist, who was named principal at Woodland Middle School.
