COLORADO SPRINGS — One of the most successful volleyball coaches in Southern Colorado in the past five years is moving on.

As first reported by Dan Mohrmann of Single Wing Media, Rampart head volleyball coach Nikki Bloeman is stepping down from her position after 8 seasons with the Rams to spend more time with family & her daughter, who is 14-months old.

"It's been really cool these past couple of days just hearing from former players that are now in big girls jobs," said Bloeman, who admits having two season in eight months has been a lot. "The impact I had on them, the program had on them, and the coaching staff and the memories that they made at Rampart. I included that in my cover letter when I first applied to the job eight years ago, I just wanted to cultivate that experience that I had at Rampart as a player and now to kind of see that come full circle is really special."

The Rampart and UCCS grad led the Rams to a 143 and 56 overall record, including a 5A state championship in 2020.
