Anna Monsen Howle came to OBU as the Head Volleyball Coach in the spring of 2008. Howle, who played four seasons at the University of Oklahoma, has rebuilt the program at OBU, which has been dormant since 1987. Volleyball began at OBU in 1975, but the program was discontinued after the 1987 season.
Howle, who is working on her master's degree at OU, has served as head coach at Carl Albert High School since April, 2007, leading the team to its first state tournament appearance. She also coached the Sooner Volleyball Club (13-year-olds) in Norman for two seasons.
While at OU, Howle was Academic All-Big XII from 2004-06 and Co-Libero of the Year in 2006. She was OU's Most Improved Player in 2004. Howle also ran track for the Sooners for one season, earning All-Conference honors in the heptathlon.
Howle has been around volleyball her entire life. Her mother, Kim, was coaching volleyball when Anna was born and took no time off during that season.
