Clinton College Names Faulkner Head Volleyball Coach


Rock Hill, SC -- Clinton College has named Tangela Faulkner as head volleyball coach.

Coach Faulkner has a vast love for coaching players as her way of giving back. With over twelve years of coaching, she has assisted more than 50 players with playing on the collegiate level. She was named Coach of the Year in the Quad County 3A Division while coaching at West Johnston High School in Benson, North Carolina.

"We are extremely excited to have Coach Tangela Faulkner, our new Head Women's Volleyball Coach, join our team in the Division of Student Success and the Clinton College family," said Dr. Angelyne Brown, Vice President of Student Success/Dean of Students. "Coach Faulkner brings a great wealth of knowledge and genuine energy to the volleyball program. We know our students and the campus community will benefit greatly from her commitment to excellence and dedication to preparing our student-athletes to win on and off the court."

A University of Mount Olive graduate, Faulkner is in the Athletics Hall of Fame as a two-time all-conference honoree for both basketball and volleyball. Ranked fifth in the nation in scoring with a school record of 22.4 points per game and averaged 9.7 rebounds per game as a junior, scoring a total of 605 points, the second-highest season total in school history. Faulkner became the only Trojan women's basketball player to score 1000 points in two seasons. She led her volleyball team in kills and blocks as a junior. She finished second in the conference in hitting percentage and fifth in kills as a senior, helping UMO win its only volleyball conference championship.

Coach Faulkner has no reservations in discussing her reason for why she coaches. "This is my ministry, and I want to equip young athletes with the same tools that someone equipped me with," said Faulkner. "If God hadn't blessed me with a full scholarship, I would never have been able to attend college. I want to help every child I impact have the same opportunity!"
