It's time for another new staff member introduction!
High Street Athletics is excited to welcome Sydney Anderson-Watson, U.S. National Player and Nebraska All-American, to the High Street Toledo coaching staff! Sydney brings a wealth of high-level player and coach experience to High Street and her energy and enthusiasm for the sport are a perfect fit for the High Street culture and philosophy.
"As a fellow Power 5 setter, I have always wanted to work together," says High Street Managing Partner, Kilee Goetz-Bailey. She adds, "Having Sydney join our team is key to High Street providing new opportunities for player development as we build our program in Toledo and Southeast Michigan."
Sydney resides in the Toledo area with her husband, a football coach at University of Toledo, and their family.

The word is out! We will, again, have more volleyball options in Livonia, at Schoolcraft College!
“We are excited to continue into our 3rd year at Schoolcraft College and have all families and programs benefit from the positive vision of the Schoolcraft College administrators, in conjunction with St. Joes/Mercy Elite. Schoolcraft and St. Joes have been instrumental in our growth, support and implementation of experiences for all. We are thrilled to have athletes and families experience the professional and progressive environment Schoolcraft College creates through its example, for all involved.” Says High Street Director, Kilee Goetz.
It is important to our program, and the university, to have several options for families and students, through the sport of volleyball. We are fortunate to benefit from such and have great facilities and resources continuing through our relationship with Schoolcraft College and it’s leadership.
We look forward to the friendly competition with another program joining the Livonia community and continuing our existing relationships with the programs in the community.
