21 Aug CBC announces coaching additions
Central Baptist College recently announced two additions to its sports staff.
Coach Jillian Jeffcoat will be entering her first season as the Lady Mustangs volleyball head coach. She was born and raised in Plano, Texas, where she attended Prestonwood Christian Academy High School. She graduated from Ouachita Baptist University as summa cum laude with a bachelor of arts in kinesiology and education.
At OBU, Jeffcoat played volleyball all four years and was a defensive specialist. She received the Jerry Forehand Sportsmanship award for senior leadership and sportsmanship.
Jeffcoat plans on starting a master’s degree program in kinesiology at the University of Central Arkansas. "I am very blessed and excited to be a part of the CBC staff. I’m excited to continue to grow this team and the program over this season. I cannot wait to really impact not only the program but the individual players and the CBC community,” she said.
Coach Wes Sullivan has been named interim men’s basketball coach at Central Baptist College. Sullivan comes to CBC after serving two years as a volunteer assistant coach for the Lady Warriors at Hendrix College.
From 2008-12, Sullivan served as the director of coaching for the Team Arkansas Elite girls basketball program. Under his direction, Arkansas Elite captured 14 AAU state championships, appeared in seven national AAU Final Fours and won one AAU national championship.
Sullivan was an assistant baseball coach for the University of Central Arkansas in Conway for three seasons in the late 1990s. He played baseball for one year at University of Arkansas at Little Rock, where he earned a bachelor of arts in history. He transferred to UCA, where he was an All-Intercollegiate Athletic Conference player in 1993.
A native of Little Rock, Sullivan graduated from J.A. Fair School in 1989 and lettered in four sports. He resides in Sherwood with his wife, Jennifer, and daughters Julia, Riley and Clara.
