Assistant Coach
Leann Gemelas-Wood

G-wood as she is affectionately called here at the Creek is in her 3rd year coaching softball and has just completed her second year as the Head coach of our 7th grade volleyball team.  G-wood does a great job with the girls and has taken up the challenge of "hitting coach" for us along with all of her other talents. We will often split the kids up into whole group and specialty instruction so her knack with hitting instruction has been especially helpful. Coach Gemelas-Wood is happily married and in her spare time loves to travel.
