Arlisa Williams Inducted into KCD Athletics Hall of Fame

Williams set several volleyball records at her high school

April 11, 2014

Washington – Georgetown Volleyball Head Coach Arlisa Williams was honored by her high school, Kentucky Country Day School (KCD). Williams, along with four other KCD graduates, was elected to the KCD Athletic Hall of Fame. Additionally, Williams was one of just two recipients of KCD's highest alumni athletic honor as she was inducted into the Royal Bearcat Society.

Williams, formerly Hagan, was the first KCD volleyball player to earn All-State honors in 1988. Her athletic feats contributed to some of the most successful Country Day volleyball teams, including a school record 26 wins. During her senior season in 1987, she hit at an impressive .750 rate. She was also an excellent basketball player and still holds a number of KCD single-season records, including a .609 season field goal percentage and 2.61 blocked shots per game as well as the single-game record with 22 rebounds.

Williams went on to earn a volleyball scholarship to the University of Wisconsin where she was three-time All Big-10 Conference member for the Badgers.

Following assistant coaching stops at Virginia Tech, American and Florida, where she helped lead the Gators to the national championship match in 2003, Williams was named the Hoyas’ head coach prior to the 2006 season.

"I am so honored at my induction in the Kentucky Country Day School Royal Bearcats Hall of Fame. Had it not been for my experience at KCD, I am not sure that I ever would have competed in sports. My time at KCD opened so many doors for me. The fact that I was recognized for something KCD created is amazingly humbling."
