Brennan Harrington ‘13 Named New Varsity Boys Volleyball Head Coach
In the 2019-2020 season, the boys JV team finished third in the ESCC Conference, which was the second-best conference finish by a Saint Viator JV team, while the freshman boys team became the 2018 ESCC Conference Champions, for only the second time in the school’s history, under his leadership.
“Brennan has been an integral part of the volleyball program at Saint Viator over the last four years and has led the boys freshman and JV teams to very successful finishes in the ESCC conference tournament,” said Kuffel. “We’re very excited to see what he’ll be able to accomplish with our varsity team.”
Prior to joining the coaching staff at Saint Viator, Harrington played volleyball for four years as a student at Saint Viator. During that time, he was named the team MVP and the Daily Herald All-Area Team Captain.
“Saint Viator has always been a second home to me,” said Harrington. “The principles taught here have had a lasting impact on me and I apply them daily on and off the court. I feel grateful for the opportunity to share my vision for the Saint Viator volleyball program and I look forward to building on its success.”
Harrington will take over the varsity boys head coaching position this season, which officially begins on April 5. The school has become a leader in the ESCC conference in its efforts to create new safety protocols that protect players and coaches from the spread of COVID-19.
Located in Arlington Heights, IL, Saint Viator High School is a private, co-ed, Catholic school for grades 9-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
