Kuntz steps down as girls coach at SMHS

In early December, San Marcos girls volleyball coach Roger Kuntz announced that he is resigning from his post with the team. He will, however, remain as the coach of the boys team. The following is an excerpt from the press release he issued:

It has been my honor and privilege to have coached in the girls’ program for three seasons and guided them as head coach for the 2007 and 2008 campaigns. I am very proud of the consistent staff that worked with our student/athletes and the character of the programs’ athletes that have graduated and are still a part of this program.

During my tenure, we have continued to make improvements to a very strong program. We have updated the team uniforms and our girls look sharp! We have entered and had success into many of the strongest tournaments in California including: The Dave Mohs Tournament, The Redondo Power Tournament, The Royal Tournament, and the Arcadia Tournament. The equipment is newer and up to date and our facilities are second to none.

We also have kept our budget in the black during this entire process.

On a personal note, we have enjoyed a very strong rapport with the officials and have never received a yellow or red card at the varsity level. We have communicated consistently with the media and represented SMHS with class at all athletic functions. We are and were professional in our attire and at all practice sessions…conducting organized practices on time and on task. 

In my two seasons at the helm, we enjoyed an 8-8 Channel League record and qualified for the CIF playoffs each of the two seasons. We improved our overall record of 16-13 in 2007 to 17-11 in 2008. After 12 seasons coaching girls volleyball (two as an assistant and 10 as the head coach), I leave with an overall girls head coaching record of 204-80).

I look forward to continuing as the San Marcos High School Royals Boys Head Volleyball Coach for many years to come. We have a great group of young men who have a strong tradition behind them, here at San Marcos.
