Coach “Manz” is one of 7 inductees for the first Hall of Fame class at RRHS in 2014.
Volleyball, with state championships in 2002, ’03, ’05, ’06, ’07, ’09: The one they call “Manz” said his greatest thrill has been “the opportunity to coach some fine athletes and individuals at RRHS and to have had a great coaching staff over the years. I think our win (3-0) vs. La Cueva in the semifinals of the 2002 state championships (was also a thrill). We were clearly the underdogs and shocked an undefeated La Cueva team with a solid, gutsy performance by my team. We were able to avenge the losses to La Cueva and Eldorado, the two losses of that season. The state championship vs. a great Eldorado team was the cap to a nice season and made RRHS athletic history.
In this day and age of constant transfers, players graduating early and even numerous coaching changes, solid contributions from a player who will commit four years to an institution have become an ever-increasing rare phenomenon. Not so for senior Darian Mullen, who put in her four years and was rewarded by becoming the New Mexico Highlands volleyball leader with 1,318 kills (3.22 kills per set).
