        Holly Watts helped guide the Arkansas volleyball program to its highest level since joining the staff in April of 1996.
        The Lady Razorbacks have played to a 250-110 record, nine Southeastern Conference Western Division titles and nine NCAA Tournament appearances with Watts in the second chair. Her hard work and commitment to the program was rewarded at the conclusion of the 2002 season when she was promoted to Associate Head Coach.
        Although her duties are many and varied, one of Watts’ most critical jobs is to coordinate all of the Lady Razorback recruiting efforts including correspondence, evaluation, visits and tracking athletes.
        In addition to her recruiting duties, she serves as the primary coach for Arkansas’ blockers.
        Her blocking talents are evident as the Lady Razorbacks have consistently ranked in the top of the SEC and the nation in blocking. In fact, the Lady Razorbacks finished the 2005 season first in the league and 12th in the country with a 3.28 block per game average. Watts has also coached the best blockers in school history including all-Americans Jessica Field and Kim Storey along with several all-conference selections. Most recently she helped 2006 senior Amy Allison finish the 2005 season ranked second in the country in blocking.
        Watts was invited to assist with the U.S. National Team for several weeks in the summer of 1998, working with the country’s elite volleyball players. While busy with the day-to-day demands of the Lady Razorback program, Watts also founded the Ozark Juniors, a club program, in the northwest Arkansas area. Ozark Juniors plays an inter-state schedule and provides playing opportunities for all ages. Watts is now serving on the board for Ozark Juniors, which continues to expand with each season.
        As an athlete, the former Holly Graham helped Texas to national dominance and was the Lady Longhorns’ MVP as a senior. An all-conference pick, she was an all-SWC and all-SWC Tournament selection as well as being named to the all-South region team in her final year. She went on to play basketball in her final year before graduating with a bachelor of science degree in kinesiology from UT in 1994.
        Watts began her coaching career while in college working with Mick Haley at the UT Volleyball Camps. Watts accepted the assistant coaching job at Texas-Arlington in 1994, a position she held until coming to Arkansas.
        Watts is married to John Watts and the couple has two sons, Jeremiah and Jared, and reside in Fayetteville.
