Moody-Breece, Glass Reflect on MHSCA Hall of Fame Nods

Kathy Moody-Breece and Laurie Glass were among the 15 coaches named to the 2020 Hall of Fame class by the Michigan High School Coaches Association.

Moody-Breece coached softball for 22 combined years at Elk Rapids and Traverse City West. She helped boost the Elks to a pair of regional titles as their head coach.

This will also be her fifth time being inducted into a hall of fame, and she’s always thankful for the support.

“What I always think about is how many other deserving people there are, and so, I share this with them,” Moody-Breece said. “We have so many great coaches in northern Michigan. But I served with the coaches’ association for 30 years and so, the service part of that, I just love. Even though I’m retired, I’m still involved. I still hang with those coaches. I’m still learning. There’s just so much I love about this game that is very rewarding.”

Glass is no stranger to success as the Leland volleyball coach. In her coaching career, she has racked up 1,131 victories. She said a big part of that success came from her players, who always want to continue the success of the program.

“I really feel like it’s truly always is a reflection of the athletes that I’ve coached and the administration that supported me and a community that’s really been behind the volleyball program for a lot of years,” Glass said. “I take little to no credit for it. I’ve just been there long enough and been in the right environment surrounded by the right kind of people.”

The induction ceremony is on September 20, 2020, and it will be held virtually. The MHSCA will hold another ceremony in-person next year.
