Sofia Sanchez | Assistant Coach
After spending her first year on campus as the director of operations for the Butler volleyball team, Sofia Sanchez has now been named assistant coach for head coach Sharon Clark for the upcoming 2015 season.
Sanchez joined the Bulldogs at the start of the 2014 season after spending the 2013 season as a graduate assistant coach at UW-Whitewater.
"Sofia is exactly the type of person we were looking for in order to help us continue the success of the volleyball program," Clark explained. "She was an impressive player while in college and was also quite impressive moving on as a professional in the coaching ranks. Sofia will be a huge asset to the players and to the coaching staff. We are very excited to have her as a Bulldog!"
A four-year player at UW-Whitewater, Sanchez was an outside hitter on the team before continuing her career with the Warhawks as a graduate assistant coach beginning at the start of the 2012 season.
She was a two-time First Team All-WIAC selection and AVCA Honorable Mention All-American pick in 2011. Sanchez finished her career ranked ninth in school history with 1,251 career kills and was third at UW-Whitewater with a career attack percentage of .355.
Sanchez recorded a double figure kill total in 69 matches, marking the fifth highest total in program history. She led UW-Whitewater to a WIAC regular season title and to a WIAC Tournament Championship in 2011 earning the team's 20th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship.
Andrea Baylin | Assistant Coach
Butler volleyball head coach Sharon Clark hired Andrea Baylin as an assistant coach in 2016. Baylin was a three-time team captain while playing at SE Missouri State. The versatile player spent a majority of her time playing outside hitter, but would move to libero when needed. She left campus after recording over 1,000 digs in a Redhawk uniform.
During her senior campaign, Baylin led the team with 314 kills (2.78 per set) while appearing in 113 of 116 total sets. She was second on the team with 19 service aces and also recorded the second-most digs on the team with 353.
After her playing career, Baylin coached the boys team at Notre Dame High School in Cape Girardeau. Most recently she spent time coaching the Academy Volleyball Club and Team Indiana.
Baylin graduated from SE Missouri State in 2015 with honors, while earning an Ohio Valley Conference Academic Medal of Honor. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in psychology with a minor in coaching and social work. At Butler, Baylin is starting her second year of graduate school.
