Whitney Matthews (Naber) makes her return to King’s in 2019 as an Assistant Coach. Coach Matthews will primarily serve both JV and C-Teams this fall, assisting Coach McCorkle and Kirton with practices and all local matches.
Whitney is a 2014 King’s graduate and former middle-bloacker and team co-captain her senior season. Matthews transferred from Freeman High School in Spokane to begin her junior year at King’s where she made a smooth transition thanks to her abilities on and off the floor. Whitney was an instant hit with her teammates as she immediately demonstrated the work ethic, humility and overall decency that would draw people to her. Matthews and co-captain, Alysanne Van Dyke would lead a very talented team with a #1 ranking all season long. While the team came up short at State, we fondly remember the high bar the team set in the way of selfless servant leadership as exhibited by our two captains.
Matthews is a University of Washing graduate and is currently Social Media Manager at Small Fox Studios in Seattle. Whitney and husband, Ben live in the Seattle area.
