Volleyball: Wellington Christian hires Alicia Hobson as new coach 

By Jeff Greer

Alicia Hobson is back in high school volleyball.

Hobson, who has coached Glades Day, King’s Academy and Summit Christian, is the new volleyball coach at Wellington Christian, where she started her coaching career in 2002. The school announced Hobson’s hire Wednesday in a release.

Hobson coached King’s Academy to the 2006 state championship and returned the Lions to the state final a year later. She guided Summit Christian to back-to-back playoff appearances in 2009 and 2010. Wellington Christian has never reached the playoffs.

As a player, Hobson played at Stetson and Glades Day.
