As a student athlete at Concordia, Crowser twice received All-Conference honors in volleyball and also was selected All Region and All American. As a member of the Concordia track team, Crowser was named freshman of the year and twice earned All-Conference track honors.
Crowser has extensive experience coaching at volleyball camps and with Junior Olympic volleyball, and she was assistant coach at Hillcrest for two seasons.
“Abby’s enthusiasm and energy are contagious, and she is very qualified as a coach to lead our program,” said Steve King, M State’s volleyball athletic coordinator. “We look forward to continuing the success the program has had under former coach Terri Strom.”
Crowser works as an M State resource specialist, and she and her husband, Brandon, have two children, daughter Emery and son Jack.
