Montgomery ISD selects Daniels to lead Lions Volleyball following most successful season in school history

Former Bears Coach, Sheila Daniels, selected as new Varsity Volleyball coach at Lake Creek HS

Lake Creek High School has selected Sheila Daniels as the Varsity Volleyball Coach at Lake Creek HS. Sheila currently serves as Montgomery ISD’s Transition Specialist in Montgomery ISD’s Specialized Learning Department, and will be returning courtside to lead the Lions after their historical 2022 season.

“I’ve been honored to serve in my role with Specialized Learning, but have truly missed the kids,” Daniels said. “I’ve missed the sport, the competition and I feel like I can continue to make an impact as a coach, helping to grow and mold these incredible student athletes into solid young women.”

Coach Daniels has been in education for 17 years, twelve of those as a Volleyball coach, and is thankful for the opportunity to return to the court in the community and district she loves.

“Sheila comes to the court with years of experience as a head coach and a real strong understanding of the culture and community here in Montgomery ISD,” MISD Athletic Director Clint Heard said. “She rose to the top of a strong pool of candidates and we believe her passion and experience will be just what is needed to lead our Lions.”

With Lake Creek Volleyball coming off their first ever Regional Championship and appearance at the UIL 5A State Tournament in the fall of 2022, Daniels realizes she has big shoes to fill. Because she has been in the role of both coach and parent, she also believes she has the ability to fill a unique need for high school volleyball parents and athletes.

“I look forward to continuing the tradition of success that Lake Creek Volleyball has established,” Daniels said. “Contributing all the life lessons that competing on the court can provide and leading and supporting these girls on our journey together.”

In just five years, Lake Creek athletics has created a standard of excellence, advancing to playoffs and having student-athletes representing Montgomery ISD at the region and state level in nearly every sport.

“I believe Coach Daniels will do an excellent job leading our Lions and continuing the incredible growth of our volleyball program,” Lake Creek Athletic Coordinator and Head Football Coach Pat Kennedy said. “Her experience as a high school coach and in the club volleyball world makes her the right fit and we are excited for her to get started!”
