Athletics Director Andy Meneely states, “Coach Halsted brings the necessary amount of experience and technical expertise to really help our program take the next step. He understands what we stand in being a Christian college.

I am looking forward to seeing the strides we can make as we try to grow the volleyball program and the athletics program as a whole.”

Coach Halsted holds a bachelor’s degree in communications from Cal State Polytechnic University - Pamona and resides in Norfolk, Virginia.
