Lauren Brobst, a star volleyball player at Bishop Heelan High School and the University of Iowa and a 2013 Heelan graduate, has been named Heelan’s new volleyball head coach, announced Anthony Elias, Heelan athletic director.

Brobst helped Bishop Heelan to four-straight conference titles and three state tournaments including a runner-up finish. She was named first team all-state volleyball by the Des Moines Register, IGCA all-district, honorable mention all-state and to the all-tournament team as a senior.

As a senior at Iowa she appeared in all 32 matches, recorded 1,087 career kills to land at No. 15 in program history, and led the team with 288 kills over 100 sets.

“We are extremely excited that Lauren Brobst will be our next head volleyball coach,” said Elias. “Lauren was a great player at Bishop Heelan and she will be a great coach for the Crusaders.”
Since graduating from Iowa in 2017 Brobst has served as an aide at Holy Cross-St. Michaels School, part of the Bishop Heelan school system.

Brobst succeeds Mary Miller, who led Bishop Heelan's volleyball team to eight state tournament berths over 12 seasons.

“I’m very excited to be a part of this program. It’s an honor to be able to coach at my alma mater,” Brobst says. “I look forward to bringing my experience and knowledge as a former player into the gym to help these girls grow into outstanding athletes.”
