Lander University head volleyball coach Ashley Stathas announced on Thursday the hiring of Alex Petock as an assistant coach for the Bearcat volleyball program. Petock spent the last four seasons as an assistant coach at Highland Community College in Kansas.

"We are very excited to have Alex join our coaching staff," said Stathas. "She has a strong background in the setting position and we are looking forward to her working with our setters. Alex has a lot of energy and passion for coaching and she is going to be a great addition to our Bearcat family."

"I am incredibly excited to be joining Coach Stathas and the Lander athletics staff. I am looking forward to bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to an already established and prominent program."

During her time at Highland, Petock helped guide the Scotties to 65 wins, including a 24-14 mark in 2016, the program's best season since 2011. The team ended the season with a No. 18 national ranking, the first ranking for the program in five years. Petock served as the head of the volleyball strength and conditioning program, while also working as a housing assistant and volunteering with multiple student activities, clubs and organizations. 

A four-year player for USC Aiken from 2009-12, Petock played in 74 matches and tallied 912 career assists with 269 digs. She ranked second on the team with 480 assists as a sophomore, including a career-high 27 against Anderson. Petock recorded 180 assists in her junior season and averaged 5.40 assists per set a senior, the second-highest average on the team. 

She graduated from USCA in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science.
