Ponderosa’s Millhollin steps away

SHINGLE SPRINGS — Long-time Ponderosa varsity girls volleyball coach Sheri Millhollin is retiring after 16 seasons at the Lady Bruins’ helm, the longest volleyball tenure for the same coach at the same school in the El Dorado Union School District.

Former Union Mine coach Mike Yates takes over the program next fall in its transition to Division II and the Capital Valley Conference.

Millhollin’s teams made the playoffs each year in Division I and II and four times reached the semifinals in both levels.

“I’m very proud of the many accomplishments we have achieved over these 16 years,” Millhollin said in an email to the Mountain Democrat. “We have been in one of the toughest leagues with teams that are powerhouses and have gained respect and become known for our competitive spirit.”

Overall, Millhollin, has coached volleyball for 28 years, including time spent at Amador High in Sutter Creek. She’s coached boys basketball for 13 years at Ponderosa, 25 overall, coached the Bruin boys volleyball team to three league titles in four years, and coached AAU boys basketball for over 15 years.

Seven former Bruins under Millhollin currently play at the college level. Even more impressive are the eight former players who coach high school volleyball, including daughter Shasta at Desert Mountain High School in Arizona.

Millhollin plans to continue coaching club volleyball for Gold Cal and do camps and clinics at both the rec and college levels.

Her departure ends a lengthy run of Millhollin coaches at the Shingle Springs campus. Sheri’s husband, Dave, had huge success as the defensive-minded boys basketball coach with the 20-win seasons before resigning. Their youngest son, Tyus, is a young player to watch as the point guard at Oak Ridge.

Sheri’s summer plans are to travel with Shasta’s team to the Mary Wise Florida camp.
