My name is Johnna Rieke, born and raised in Leavenworth WA. I am beyond excited to be part of Kodiak Club this year, taking on my first ever coaching position! I've been playing volleyball since I was 9 years old, and my senior year as a Kodiak we won the State Championship.

Hi, I’m Coach Tony. I have been coaching volleyball for four years. In addition to starting my second season as the Boys 18u coach, I started with a 14u girls club team, spent the last three years at Cascade High School serving as the JV/ assistant coach and just ended last year as the Varsity Coach. I have a passion for sports, starting from a young age, through my time as a collegiate baseball player, and I continue to compete on teams across the U.S. I love playing and watching volleyball, some of my favorite teams are the women’s UW Huskies, Nebraska, and the Arkansas Razorbacks. My favorite men’s programs are Hawaii and UCLA. When I am not coaching, I work in Real Estate at Laura Mounter. I love to win and hate to lose, but the most important thing to me as a Coach, is to have FUN!
