Hall takes over Barton volleyball program

Patrick Hall will be taking over the Barton Community College volleyball as the Cougars new head coach for the 2011 season. Hall was hired recently to replace Jaime Cabral. Hall comes to Barton from just down the road at another Jayhawk West school. Hall has been the head coach at Pratt for the past 5 seasons, where he earned 3 Jayhawk West Coach of the Year awards.

This past season Pratt won the Jayhawk West volleyball regular season title for the 1st time in school history, guiding Pratt to a 12-2 mark in the West. That earned him coach of year in the West for the 3rd time in his five seasons with the Beavers. Hall also won the award in 2006 and 2008. Twice his teams were runner-up in the Region VI playoffs, just missing the school’s first trip to the NJCAA National Tournament. He also coached Pratt’s 1st ever All American during his time.


His 5-year mark at Pratt was 84-92 but in conference play he guided the Beavers to a 33-21 record - 28-10 the past 3 seasons. The five previous seasons before Hall’s arrival, Pratt won a total of 9 Jayhawk West games, going 9-31.


Before going to Pratt, Hall founded and directed the largest club program in the Garden Empire Region - New Jersey and New York - of United States Association of Volleyball. His teams earned berths at USAV Nationals every year. While continuing to coach club ball, Hall coached NCAA Division II Bloomfield College in 2002, where he also earned Coach of the Year honors.
