Clarksville Christian School is delighted to welcome veteran Texas coach Jennifer Lawrence as the new head volleyball coach for the Lady Centurions. Jennifer Lawrence comes to the CCS from Lubbock Christian University, where she most recently served as Assistant Sports Director for Compliance. In addition to her role as a volleyball coach, she will also be the Assistant Director of Sports and a member of the CCS administrative team.
Coach Lawrence said she was “looking forward to working alongside CCS staff to mentor and help students grow academically, athletically and spiritually.” Lawrence added that she was “excited to start” and appreciates the opportunity to be a part of the Clarksville community.
Prior to working in sports administration, Lawrence spent 15 seasons coaching the LCU Lady Chaps volleyball team. During that time, she won 6 conference titles and won three conference Coach of the Year honors. With a record of 336-155 in 491 career games, she is the all-time leader for volleyball wins in LCU program history. Before rising through the college ranks, Coach Lawrence spent several years as a high school head coach in Denver City (TX).
Lawrence herself is a former LCU student-athlete, competing for the Lady Chaps in the ’90s and claiming NAIA All-American Scholar Athlete accolades along the way. She holds a bachelor’s degree in secondary education and a master’s degree in kinesiology.
CCS Athletic Director Cole Harper has expressed his enthusiasm for the addition of Coach Lawrence to the coaching staff. “She comes to us with a track record of success in the high school and college volleyball scenes, and we believe she will help our teams reach new heights.” Harper also noted Coach Lawrence’s passion for mentoring students, adding that “we are blessed to have him at the helm of our volleyball program and we cannot wait for the coming season.”
Jennifer is married to Jerry Lawrence, an LCU alumnus, who will join CCS as senior school principal and associate principal of the school. They have two daughters, Cailey and Carsynn, and a son, Camden, born in 2003 and died in 2004.
