Coach Bollier's Thoughts:
The talent and harmony in this coaching staff this season is absolutely amazing as we all have a focus to motivate and generate the energy for our athletes to “find a way!” It has been an absolute privilege to work with such great student athletes at Mt. SAC and this new team is without exception. The excitement in these athletes’ eyes and the appreciation in their actions is what drives my desire to continue to give back as a college coach. These athletes do not yet fully understand that the exciting journey they are about to take, along with the friendships they will make with their teammates this season will prove to be “invaluable and unforgettable”. The experiences they receive at Mt. SAC will provide the tools needed to help them handle the challenges life will give them in their future!
