With the sudden departure of former Assistant Athletic Director and Boys Head Basketball Coach, Cory Hitchcock, Kehau Rust is ready to take the job.

Rust is the Head Volleyball Coach for the Glenwood Springs Lady Demons, and former Assistant Beach Volleyball Coach for Colorado Mesa University. Rust has wanted to be an Athletic Director ever since she started college. When Hitchcock got a new job coaching the women’s basketball team at the University of the Southwest in Hobbs, New Mexico, Rust took little time in accepting the offer she’d been waiting for.

“But when I actually got hired to coach the volleyball team, it was kind of a joke that I would take over Cory’s job if Cory took over for Craig (Denney),” Rust said.

Rust is confident that she will excel in her new position. She’s looking forward to being with the kids everyday. She hopes to make as big of an impact as Hitchcock did with the students. Rust has already made an impact with some of the varsity volleyball girls.

“She’s always just been super supportive of me, and has always encouraged me through everything and has helped me through a lot of personal stuff as well,” Junior Emily Nilsson said. “She’s just a super kind person who always has your best interest at heart. She’s so down to Earth and kind, and she just knows what to do if you need anything.”

Rust’s main goal is to perfect every program and build them each year, much like what she has done with the volleyball team.

“She’s just super encouraging and that helps players like play to their full potential and it really helps them to be the best player that they can be,” Nilsson said. “She really emphasizes being a team and playing as a team which has helped our program immensely.” 

Rust is coming in fearless, confident, and enthusiastic for this year.
