Berg Named Assistant Volleyball Coach
Feb. 20, 2004
Tulsa, Okla. - Former Golden Hurricane volleyball player Courtney (Little) Berg will return to The University of Tulsa as the newest member of the volleyball staff, as announced today by Head Coach Matt Sonnichsen. Berg played at TU for two seasons in 1998 and 1999. She also served as a student assistant coach during the 2000 season.
As a player, Berg was named to the WAC all-academic team both seasons. As a freshman, she shared the setting duties, finishing second on the squad in assists with 468 and second in digs with 224. Her sophomore season was marred by injuries, leading to her decision to begin her coaching career.
In addition to her time as a student assistant coach with the Golden Hurricane, Berg has served as the head coach for the Bartlesville Eclipse. This past season, she assisted the Bartlesville High School squad as a volunteer coach. Before moving to Bartlesville with husband, Jeff, Berg taught private lessons in Tulsa. She also served as a coach with the Hurricane Juniors Volleyball Club for two years.
"I am very happy to have Courtney back in the TU volleyball family," said Sonnichsen. "She was everything a coach could ask for in a student-athlete. Courtney is one of the reasons that our program has grown from being locally known to nationally recognized. No one knows The University of Tulsa better than Courtney and she will immediately be an asset to our players and recruits."
A native of Jenks, Okla., and graduate of Jenks High School, Berg was a two-time Oklahoma Volleyball Player of the Year selection. She has also served as a counselor at the Kanakuk Kamps for the past three summers.
Berg earned her bachelor's degree in marketing from TU in 2002, graduating with Magna Cum Laude honors. She also earned a Certificate of Youth Ministry and Family Relations from The Kanakuk Institute in 2003.
