Abby Ludeman

Head Coach of 15 Blue

Coach Abby's Bio
 

Coach Abby found her love for volleyball when she was eight years old and never looked back. When it came to deciding to play Division I volleyball, she opted to focus on her academics instead, but after one semester at SMU, missed the game so much and started playing for the SMU club volleyball team. Besides volleyball, Abby also grew up playing tennis, competitive swim, and sand volleyball. 

 

Favorite core value at DIG

Abby's favorite core value is EFFORT.  She believes that practices are best run when the highest level of effort is put in by every individual on the team. Abby says, “I stress positivity, maximum effort and ‘next point mentality’ in all of my practices and tournaments. In a game you are given the choice to either dwell on a past mistake or learn from it and focus on the next ball over. Always having the better-the-ball mentality encourages camaraderie and emphasizes teamwork. At the end of a day it takes a team to win, not just individuals.” 

 

Personal

Abby loves to spend time with her two year old labradoodle named Monty as well as lots of time with her family. When she’s not coaching on a Sunday, you’ll find her at church and brunch with her family. In addition to that, she enjoys playing sand volleyball and her job as the creative director at Buff City Soap where she shares her love for logo design and branding.

Favorite core value at DIG
