Eagleman named East volleyball coach

Alison Eagleman has coached volleyball players of several different ages, and now she’ll have a chance to coach a high school team.

Eagleman was announced Monday as the new volleyball coach at Columbus East. She replaces Ellyn McIntosh, who resigned following the fall season.

“I have played with all levels of volleyball players, coached different ages and taught fitness to kids, all the way up to 80 years of age,” Eagleman said in a news release. “I have to be able to adjust to all levels and communicate effectively to bring out the best in each player.”

The former Alison Ransdell is a 1996 East graduate and played on the Olympians team that reached the state final four as a freshman. She was an Indiana Volleyball North-South All-Star as a senior and went on to play at Murray State.

Eagleman earned a degree in Kinesiology from Indiana University. While she was at IU, she began her coaching career as an assistant at Bloomington North.

Eagleman is the wife of East strength coach Karl Eagleman.

“I am eager to pass along the skills, the determination, the competitiveness, and the importance of teamwork to the Columbus East Olympian Volleyball program,” Alison said.
