Washington’s longtime volleyball coach resigns

CHESTERTOWN — Washington College announced this week that Jamie Leventry had resigned after 11 years as head coach of the volleyball program.

An “immediate” search would be conducted for Leventry’s successor, according to a June 26 post on the college’s athletics website.

Leventry began his tenure in Chestertown in 2012 as associate head coach — after serving as an assistant coach at Goucher College in 2010 and 2011 and at Severna Park High School from 2005 to 2009.

He ascended to head coach here in 2013 and in his first year led Washington to a 19-9 overall record, which included 5-5 in the Centennial Conference.

Washington followed with records of 19-9 in 2014 and 17-10 in 2015, the first time the program had three winning seasons in a row since its very early years in the late 1970s.

Leventry finished with 128 career wins.

He was the eighth head coach in a program that sent out its first varsity team in 1976.

In a written statement, Leventry said: “It’s been an honor and a pleasure to coach at Washington College. I want to thank [Athletic Director] Thad Moore, all the other coaches, our strength staff and our athletic training staff for all their support over the years. It’s been a joy to coach so many talented and dedicated athletes. Washington College will always be a special place for me.”

Moore thanked Leventry for his contributions to the volleyball program, and said he would be missed.

“We wish him the best of luck with the next steps of his professional career,” Moore said in the June 26 website post.
