Mary Ann Sprague
Mary Ann feels right at home with Team Long Run, as her coaching career of over thirty years has been dedicated to promoting strong and selfless lives on and off the court. Coaching NCAA college volleyball, developing youth sport programs and running fitness classes for seniors have kept Mary Ann busy, but through it all, her greatest passion is found in building community and culture through sport (play!).
Mary Ann’s college teams regularly earned AVCA’s highest national academic award and won the conference Sportsmanship Award nine times. Her players have graduated and gone into the world as business leaders, professional athletes and loyal family members. Mary Ann received her MBA from University of Missouri and is a USAV CAP Certified Coach, ACE Group Fitness Instructor and triathlete (in her spare time!). Relocating to California was an easy decision for Mary Ann, as it brought her closer to her daughters and is a prime spot to promote and support a healthy and active lifestyle through Team Long Run.
