Tess Kovala

Currently coaching: 17-2 Royal

Tess Kovala is a current Junior at the University of St. Thomas and her love for volleyball began at age 5 when she was dragged to her older sister’s tournament’s.  She started playing JO as a 12-year-old and found her love for defense as a libero.  Tess played volleyball at White Bear Lake Area High School where she was named captain.

Her coaching experience began as a senior in high school where she coached at North Juniors as an assistant to her older sister.  Most recently she was the head coach for their 16-1s team.  Tess loves seeing her players get even more excited than she does after a big point!
