LINDEN – Jodi Webster who has been at the helm for the North Montgomery Volleyball team has chosen to step away as head coach of the Lady Chargers. Webster has been the head coach of the Chargers volleyball team since 2005. 

Under her guidance, the Lady Chargers have claimed three sectional titles, four Sagamore Athletic Conference titles, and seven county championships. Webster in her 15 year career totaled 255 career wins. 

Despite all the success that the team has had under her direction, it’s not the trophies or accolades that Webster will remember most, it’s all the people and kids that she has gotten the chance to work with and coach. 

“I’ve just been so blessed,” Webster said. “I’ve had my family beside me and the entire North Montgomery community beside me this entire time. I truly do love North Montgomery and for me to raise my family here and have my three boys grow up and understand what being a great athlete was very special to me.” 

In her first season back in 2005 the Lady Chargers went 20-10. That began six year run for the team in which they won 23 or more games the next five seasons. The Lady Chargers best season under Webster came in 2008 when the team went 31-5. Webster also took the time to reflect on the players that she’s had the opportunity to coach and the legacy that she leaves behind. 

“Seeing these girls become great people, not just on the court, but off it as well has been amazing to witness,” Webster said. “I just tried to have the girls be better than what they were the day before and to try and teach them to make a difference in other people’s lives. All of the girls, they’re just really great girls, tremendous athletes, and most importantly great people.  I’ve had so many great coaches that I’ve worked with during this journey and to see them go on and lead other schools and programs has been something special to me.”

The Lady Chargers the last four season have started to decline as the team finished with a 4-28 record this past season. Despite the hardships, Webster did not let that get to her or the team. 

“At the end of the day it’s not about the wins or losses,” Webster said. “It’s simply about the players and how I’ve gotten to see them grow up as young women. The relationships that I have built over the past 15 years have been absolutely incredible and no one can take that away.” 
Webster’s youngest son Drew (class of 2020) will be on the wrestling team this upcoming season.
