New volleyball head coach on campus April 15

Laramie County Community College’s new volleyball head coach, Ben Stroud, will arrive on campus on Monday, April 15, and will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. in the gym.

In his 21 years of experience as a volleyball coach, Stroud has won eight National Junior College Athletic Association championships. “Further, his combined record as a volleyball coach is 940-184,” Pete Cautilli, LCCC’s new director of athletics and campus recreation, said.

“I applied because, for me as a person, it was personally a really good fit. I am kind of a small town kind of person,” Ben Stroud, LCCC volleyball head coach, told Wingspan. He likes smaller schools and has taught at a junior college for more than 20 years, Stroud added.

“He falls in line with what I said when I was hired; we want to develop winners,” Cautilli said. “That’s not just on the court. He is dedicated to developing quality student athletes.”

Further, Stroud is dedicated to recruiting quality student athletes and graduating them, Cautilli added.

Stroud was fired from the College of Southern Idaho, Twin Falls. “I don’t know all the details, but I talked to Ben straightforward and asked him about what happened,” Cautilli said. In short, “things can happen to people,” but these are always “rectifiable,” Cautilli added.

Stroud was straightforward about what happened in Southern Idaho, and Cautilli said he saw no reason for concerns. “He is a good guy, and I know everything will be in compliance,” Cautilli said.
