Former Highland resident Hannah Barrett is headed to the Lone Star State.

Barrett, a former Citrus Valley High and Cal State San Bernardino volleyball star, has been named the director of operations for Texas Tech University volleyball.

“I am excited to come to Texas Tech and be part of this amazing staff and program,” Barrett said via news release. “I want to thank Tony Graystone [women’s volleyball coach] for the opportunity and can’t wait to get to work!”

Said Graystone: “I am very happy to welcome Hannah as our new director of volleyball operations. Hannah stood out among a strong field of candidates and there is no doubt she will make a positive impact on our program.”

Barrett heads to Texas Tech after two seasons at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash. where she worked as a volunteer coach and director of operations while pursuing her master’s degree in sport and athletic administration.

At Gonzaga, she assisted with coaching and statistical data analysis, coordinated travel arrangements and helped with administrative duties.

Barrett, a mathematics major, was team captain at CSUSB her senior year and helped the Coyotes to three conference titles, a West Regional title and an NCAA Division II Elite Eight appearance in 2017.

She is the daughter of Marty Barrett and Tina Raddish, the latter having coached her daughter at Citrus Valley.

At Citrus Valley, Barrett was the team captain for three seasons and made all-league four times. She was named the school’s female athlete of the year as a senior.
