Middleton takes new job

Bethel College volleyball coach Stacy Middleton announced her resignation to become the athletic operations administrator at Bethel.

Middleton is a Bethel alumn, who coached the Threshers for four seasons. She was 22-91 in four seasons, 10-60 in KCAC play. The team reached the KCAC post-season tournament twice in her tenure, including this past season.

"I appreciate everything Stacy did for Bethel College Volleyball over the past four years as head coach," Bethel athletic director Tony Hoops said. "She poured her heart and soul into a program she loves."

"I am proud of the faith-based program that my staff and I were able to develop in the volleyball program and improve the culture," Middleton said. "I will miss the relationships that we have built and am anxious to see where this program goes from here."

She coached five All-KCAC selections and nine NAIA Scholar-Athletes. Three of her teams were named both KCAC and NAIA Scholar-Athlete teams based on the team’s grade-point-average. The team is likely to be awarded a fourth academic title this season.

She also served as “KCAC and NAIA Champions of Character liaison, assessment committee, chapel committee, interim host parent coordinator, and basketball gameday administrator.”

She previously served as head softball coach, turning that program over to her husband David when she became volleyball coach. She is currently an assistant softball coach.

Her new position includes, “overseeing specific athletic fundraising and helping with the department's efforts in compliance, gameday administration, Title IX, and special events.”

"I am ready to play a bigger role in athletics as a whole," Middleton said. "I'm excited for this challenge and the opportunity to have a greater impact with our Bethel students, alumni, donors, and community."

McCord named BC dance coach

Kiley McCord has been named the head coach of the Bethel College competitive dance team.

McCord has served as the interim coach since December.

"I'm extremely excited for the future of Bethel College Dance with Kiley now taking over the program in a permanent role" Bethel athletic director Tony Hoops said. "She did an outstanding job this past season, taking over during a tough time right at the beginning of the competitive season."

McCord led the team to four top-three finishes this season, including a second-place finish at the NAIA Southwest Regional Qualifier. The team was fifth in the KCAC championships.

The team had its first All-KCAC first-team selection in Meya Green, while Edel Miller and Evelyn Manresa were both named KCAC Scholar-Athletes.
