HELENA — HELENA — After six years at the helm, three titles and a 71-match win streak, Helena Capital head volleyball coach Rebecca Cleveland is stepping down from her position with the Bruins.
In a text to Montana Sports, Cleveland said "I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside some of the best coaches in the state and with countless athletes that have made a positive impact in our program. I truly appreciate the support given from the Capital High community and Bruin Volleyball families. I'm proud of our legacy and now look forward to spending time with my family- not just quality time, but more in quantity."

Coach Cleveland strived to produce not only quality volleyball players but more importantly to her, positive, confident young women with the personal skills needed to be leaders in all they pursue."
