April 2, 2019
The Del Norte High School Athletic Department is pleased to announce that Ms. Gabrielle Mirand has been named the new Head Coach of the Girls’ Volleyball program. Coach Mirand brings wealth of coaching and playing experience to Del Norte. Coach Mirand is a third-year coach at Epic Volleyball Club, coaching middle school fall teams and the 17 elite team. She began her coaching career in North Carolina, coaching for Piedmont Volleyball Club. She is a 2014 graduate of Southern Utah University and a 2015 graduate of High Point University. Beginning at Southern Utah University, she led her team on the court as the setter of the All-Freshman team in the Summit League and was elected captain in her sophomore season as they moved to the Big Sky Conference. Graduating early from SUU, she completed her volleyball career at High Point University in North Carolina. In her last two seasons in the Big South Conference, she accumulated many accolades that can only be attributed to the fervor and passion her and her teammates shared for volleyball. She received All-Tournament accolade in the Duke Classic Tournament, along with accolades in the 2014 Big South Conference Tournament. In her final season, she was given the honor of receiving Scholar Athlete of the Year.
Gabrielle grew up in Long Beach, CA, she attended St. Joseph High School in Long Beach. During her prep years; Gabi played for several successful coaches, including Erika Dillard of University of Oregon.
In August 2016, Coach Mirand decided to move back to Southern California. She was hired by Mr. Dave Lemaster at Rancho Bernardo High School as a Resource Specialist. Gabi has been a wonderful resource for our students at RBHS these past few years as she brought a passion for learning combined with a love for the sport of volleyball. I have no doubt she will bring this same passion and commitment to her new role as the varsity head coach at Del Norte, says Mr. Lemaster. Coach Mirand has also been instrumental in establishing the Beach Volleyball Club at RB.
During the interview process, it was apparent that Gabi possesses a keen ability to motivate her athletes, teach skills, and to prepare their teams to compete at the highest level. We are proud to welcome Coach Mirand to the Nighthawk Nation.
