Coach Carrie’s impressive college playing career and coaching career are second to none. As a college volleyball player at Duke University, Carrie was a four year starter as a middle blocker and was the ACC Player of the Year her senior year in 2008 as was as the all-time kill leader in the ACC with 1,976 kills. Coach Carrie was also recently inducted into her high school’s Hall of Fame.

Additionally, she has coached at four volleyball clubs with various experience at different age levels. 

 

Favorite core value at DIG

Carrie loves the quote from Remember the Titans, “Attitude reflects leadership, Captain!”  The core value, INTEGRITY, is extremely important to Carrie. Having a foundation of strong moral principles and holding yourself and others to a high standard creates a roadmap for success. “I like to remind my players that they are there for each other and to step foot in the gym everyday with passion and integrity,” Carrie says.

Abby Ludeman

Coach Abby's Bio
 

Coach Abby is entering her second year with DIG. Last year, she was the head coach of the 15 Blue team. 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, “My stress positively, 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 three 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.
