Athletic Hall of Honor

– 2019 –

Gretchen Goebel PetersonGretchen Goebel Peterson ’01– Gretchen has been noted as “living a life of excellence” by her teammates, players, peers, friends and family. Her drive became apparent in high school where she was a member of the National Honor Society and a varsity volleyball athlete for Round Top-Carmine High School – making the state tournament three years in a row with two championships and one runner-up, and a state semi-finalist in basketball. Gretchen was accepted to Schreiner College in 1997 on a volleyball scholarship. Her leadership was evident to her coaches almost immediately as she was named captain of the team her sophomore year. Gretchen added her name to the Schreiner volleyball record books numerous times. Her record of most career kills still stands today at 1223. After graduating from Schreiner College with an exercise science degree, Gretchen coached volleyball for Ingram Tom Moore High School, Elgin Junior High School and is currently the head volleyball and track coach at Liberty Hill High School. Her coaching accomplishments include: two-time state volleyball semi-finalists, four regional volleyball tournament appearances, multiple district and area volleyball championships, two-time state track championship (4×4 relay), state track championship (individual mile) and she was named the Austin American-Statesman Centex 4A Coach of the Year in 2016. Her dedication and passion for the success of her student athletes led to her being appointed Girls Athletic Coordinator in 2017 and her leadership also extends to the classroom where she serves as the department head for the history department.

Helping them become successful and seeing them grow to their potential was his reward. He coached, taught and counseled until his retirement in 2004. “As long as I can walk and move around, I will continue to do what I love – track and field.” Bill was inducted into the Texas Region IV Class AAA Meet Officials Hall of Honor in 2017.
