Holtgeerts Joins Volleyball Staff

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Ahead of the 2023 season, the Oregon State volleyball program has completed its staff with the hiring of Becca Holtgeerts, as announced by head coach Lindsey Behonick.

“I am thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to join the volleyball staff at Oregon State,” said Holtgeerts. “Lindsey has taken her teams to back-to-back Final Fours and opportunities to learn from coaches like her do not come around often. I am excited about her vision for this program and I can already see the changes that she is making here. I look forward to helping her fulfill her vision for Oregon State Volleyball.”

Joining the Beavers from Western Oregon, Holtgeerts served as an assistant coach where she was tasked with planning practices, analyzing film, assisting with recruiting and coordinating team travel.

Before she was in Monmouth, she served as a volunteer assistant coach for Cal Poly in the 2021 season. The Mustangs placed third in the Big West and saw three student-athletes garner all-league honors after the campaign.

She spent 11 months in the Sun Belt Conference with Louisiana-Monroe as a graduate assistant for both the beach volleyball and volleyball programs while she completed a graduate degree in exercise science.

Getting her start at the collegiate level for her alma mater, Holtgeerts served Pacific Lutheran as both an assistant volleyball coach and assistant strength and conditioning coach. She helped lead the Lutes to a pair of 20-plus win seasons and a pair of appearances in the NCAA Tournament, with a win in the 2017 season.

“I am so excited with the new rule change to add assistant coach Becca Holtgeerts to our OSU family,” said Behonick. “Her work ethic, organization, professionalism, willingness to learn, adaptability and volleyball knowledge makes her a perfect fit. I’m thankful she sees the vision of where this program can go and is the ideal person to complete our staff.”  

Originally from Everett, Washington, Holtgeerts led Pacific Lutheran to three NCAA Tournaments and a pair of Northwest Conference crowns as a middle blocker. In her playing days with the Lutes, PLU won 55 of 64 league matches.
