Posted on 03/24/2017

St. Mary High School is proud to welcome Barrett Pazderka as the new volleyball head coach for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. Along with his enthusiasm for the game, Coach Barrett brings a plethora of experience and knowledge to our student-athletes and our program.

Coach Barrett is from the St. Louis area, and graduated from Murray State University with a degree in Public Relations and Marketing. He is an Associate Risk Advisor for Peel & Holland in the Paducah region, and enjoys attending St. Louis sporting events and volunteering in the community.

Coach Barrett has played volleyball for nearly fifteen years. He played for St. Louis University High School, High Performance Volleyball Club, and was selected to attend multiple USAV camps across the country. He is proud to have received a Catholic school education from kindergarten through graduation. Most recently, he was the assistant coach for the Murray High School's freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams. He currently coaches the WKVC Jaguars 18U team in which he is about to complete a successful season.

"I am a firm believer that volleyball can prepare young people for life in many different ways. This sport helps players develop communication skills, confidence, team work, and ultimately how to become the best version of themselves. 

I believe success is not measured by wins and losses, but instead by players truly striving to reach their full potential. I want to ignite passion and motivate players to have a contagious energy that selflessly benefits the whole team," says Pazderka.

"I'm excited for the next chapter of St. Mary volleyball and look forward to seeing how Barrett's enthusiasm and experience translates through our young women.  You can tell by talking with him that he has a true passion for the game and is a great, faithful example for our athletes." - Brad Ehlers, St. Mary Athletic Director.

Welcome to our St. Mary family, Coach Barrett!
