Shane Forrest, who turned Montrose into a perennial participant at the state volleyball tournament, is returning as the coach of the school's volleyball program.

The school announced her hire on Twitter on Wednesday:

Forrest stepped down from Montrose after the 2016 season following 20 seasons at the helm of the team. Included were six trips to the state tournament in her final 10 seasons. Over that span, Forrest's teams went 180-84, averaging 18 wins per season.

Montrose finished 10-15 in Class 4A in its lone season under Heidi Voehringer last season.
