Karah Points or Jill Riddle- 11 National Head Coach

Karah Points:

I was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. I am the oldest child to Troy and Rachel Points. I have a brother, Trevor, and a younger sister, Lilah. I also have three large family dogs: Bandit and Smokey (Great Pyrenees/St. Bernard Mix), and Blaze (Great Pyrenees/Golden Mix).

I started playing volleyball in the fourth grade. I played club volleyball for a total of 8 years, with my last 4 years being at NPJ before going onto to play in college. I played at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon from 2019-2021 as a serving specialist and setter. I earned my Associates of general studies.

I am very family oriented- our family does everything together. Besides Volleyball, I like to go snowmobiling in the winter. During the summer, you can find my family at the dirt racetrack watching my brother race is car. I also love to go shopping and  Starbucks trips with my younger sister. She is my little best friend. I also enjoy decorating, buying plants (specifically succulents), and buying shoes!

TishaSweety R.J. - 11 National Assistant Coach

I was born and raised in Salem, OR. I’ve played basketball, volleyball, and softball throughout my life, but volleyball has always had my heart. I’ve played volleyball since I was five years old with the Boys & Girls Club of Salem. During my high school years, I played setter and right side hitter as the only lefty on the team (Go lefties!). I played intramurally throughout college, and I play recreationally today with local leagues and Pacific Islander tournaments. I recently graduated from the University of Oregon in 2020 with my degree in Indigenous, Race, & Ethnic studies, and I now serve as a Director/Founder of my own language & cultural program with the Micronesian Islander Community of Salem. In this position, I lead a group of individuals of all ages to help connect & develop a sense of belonging to our culture and heritage through classes, events, and activities. I love working and building relationships with kids, especially in spaces where their passions and potential are being exercised. In the world of volleyball, I hope to bring these same core values of leadership, culture, and connectivity to our players. One key takeaway that I have learned playing volleyball all these years is that it is not only a physical game, but a mental game. As a coach, I hope to instill and model this to our players.
