Seems only fitting that our 1,000th post comes at the very moment that #3 Assumption defeats #16 St. Joseph Academy 25-15, 25-17 to give Coach Ron Kordes his 1,000th career victory! Coach Kordes has officially reached 1,000 wins before dropping 100 matches. Congratulations to Coach Ron Kordes and Assumption Volleyball on this amazing accomplishment! #ExcellenceEmpowers #RocketPride
The run for the 68-year old includes 19 state championships since taking over the program in 1988, with 8 in a row from 1995-2002. Among his star talents from that period are Alexa Filley, the 2013-2014 Gatorade National Player of the Year.
Assumption is currently ranked as the 7th-best team in the country in the latest USA Today Super 25 High School rankings. That’s a fall of 2 spots after losing to Louisville rivals Sacred Heart in the tournament championship.
Kordes is the owner of the KIVA volleyball club and the father of University of Louisville head coach Anne Kordes.
