The Mohawk women’s volleyball team will have a new assistant coach for the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association season.

Jane Pegg joins the Mountaineers and replaces Jennifer Marson, who recently indicated she was leaving the program to spend more time with her young family after three years as Mohawk’s lead assistant.

Having just moved to Hamilton after completing her degree in Criminology at St Mary’s University in Halifax, Pegg brings a wealth of playing experience and knowledge to the Mohawk program, said head coach Andrew Nicholson.

Her credentials include: 2009 Saskatchewan HS Athlete of the Year; 2010-11 Atlantic University Sport 2nd team all star; 2012-13 AUS 2nd team all star; 2013-14 AUS 2nd team all star; 2013 academic all Canadian; 2014 academic all Canadian; and 2013-14 St Mary’s team captain.

Pegg also led the AUS in assists in each of her starting seasons and was second in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport in assists/set in 2011-12 season.

Nicholson said Pegg will work primarily with Mohawk’s new group of setters and will oversee the evolution of the Mountaineers offensive game. Having recently graduated from the CIS as both a decorated player and two-time Academic All-Canadian, Nicholson believes that Pegg will bring a fresh, unique coaching perspective to Mohawk’s program.
