Hello! My name is Sara Rishell and this is my 4th year at Thompson High School. I am also the Assistant Varsity Volleyball Coach. I am originally from Smithsburg, Maryland which is a small town outside of the Baltimore and DC area.
I received my Bachelors in English Language Arts with a concentration in Literature from UAB in 2015, and my Masters Degree in Secondary Education, English Language Arts in 2017. During this time, I was also on the Volleyball team and Beach Volleyball team at UAB. I have also been a member of the USA Collegiate National Team for Indoor Volleyball. In my spare time, I enjoy competing in Beach Volleyball around the US!
This is my final year as "Coach Rishell," as I will be married in November of this year and become Coach Cowart!
