Thirty years, and 9## wins later, Coach Chisum is still here and loving what she does. She began her coaching career at San Marcos and New Braunfels High Schools before finding her way back to then Southwest Texas State University, where she earned two degrees.
Her first year as head coach here was 1980. Since then, she has climbed all the way to 8th on the all-time N-C-double-A wins list.
STANDUP -"Over the 30 plus years shes been here at Texas State, Coach Chisum said not the wins and losses that matter, but the relationships shes forged over the years"
SOUNDBITE- "The reason I keep coming back is the people. I've met so many great people over the years here at Texas State."
Senior Captain Brittany Collins says Coach Chisum is much more than just a coach to her.
SOUNDBITE- "Her door is always open. She's makes sure that she is there for us whenever we need here." The Volleyball Banners hanging in the rafters at Texas State are a testament to her success and passion for the game. Yet, no matter how many wins and championships she has under her belt, Chisum says she has no timetable for her exit.
SOUNDBITE- "I'm still energetic. I still love to coach. I'm not gonna be Joe Paterno. You won't see me here at 82. But as long as I can do this well. I'll be here at Texas State University."
Coach Chisum- a true bobcat. For Bobcat Update, I'm Colby Howell.
