Since August 2016, Larson has worked as the assistant varsity and head JV coach and recruitment coordinator for the Dakota State University volleyball program.

Larson is a former competitive student-athlete for Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kan. (NJCAA, Division 1), and a 10-year club volleyball coach for men’s and women’s teams. In addition, she brings with her valuable experience as a club director/coordinator and a former high school volleyball program director.

Larson also is the co-founder of Madison JO club program at Dakota State University.

“Ceanna’s passion, organization and track record as a strong leader make her the perfect fit for the head coach of BMCC’s women’s volleyball program,” said Dawn DiFuria McClendon, director of Athletics, Outreach & Student Life. “She brings strong success in recruitment and implementing competitive practices with a focus on physical development.”

Larson replaces Jessica Humphreys, who stepped down after four years in January in order to have more time with her family.
