Kendall Gaffney is entering her first season as assistant coach with the Stonehill volleyball program under first year head coach Kathleen Colpoys.
“I am thrilled to have Kendall join our program,” Colpoys said. “Her excellent collegiate playing career and overall passion for the game, along with her background in psychology, will make her a great asset to our program on and off the court.”
Gaffney is a 2014 graduate of Bryant University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in applied psychology and was a four-year member of the Bulldogs’ volleyball program, serving as team captain as a senior. As an outside hitter, she totaled over 200 kills and 200 digs as a freshman in 2010, and was a two-time Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week selection. Gaffney gained coaching experience last year with RI Blast, a club volleyball team based in Rhode Island.
Outside of volleyball, Gaffney is currently a Classroom Behavior Specialist at Lifespan School Solutions in Providence, Rhode Island, where she provides direct care and behavioral management in a special education classroom for children between the ages of 7-15.
A native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Gaffney led Cheyenne Mountain High School to consecutive state championships in 2008 and 2009, earning tournament MVP and Denver Post 4A Player of the Year honors as a senior.
