Anna Howle - Head Coach


Oklahoma Baptist University has hired former Big XII co-Libero of the Year Anna Monsen Howle as its head volleyball coach in 2008.

Since coming to OBU, she has coached the team to a record 31-win season and is 55-26 over two seasons. She has coached two Sooner Athletic Conference Freshmen of the Year, a Newcomer of the Year, an All-American and NAIA Scholar Athletes, along with a number of All-Conference players.

In addition to her coaching duties at OBU, she has been a camp director for OBU, numerous high school camps, Home school camps and has coached at camps at the University of Arkansas and Northern Iowa. She also teaches kinesiology and leisure studies courses at OBU.

Howle, who played four seasons at the University of Oklahoma, began rebuilding the program at OBU, which has been dormant since 1987. OBU started volleyball in 1975, but the program was discontinued after the 1987 season. Her first Lady Bison team posted a 24-16 record.

Howle, who is working on her master's degree at OU, served as head coach at Carl Albert High School in 2007, leading the team to its first state tournament appearance. She also coached the Sooner Volleyball Club (13-year-olds) in Norman for two seasons.

While at OU, Howle was Academic All-Big XII from 2004-06 and Co-Libero of the Year in 2006. She was OU's Most Improved Player in 2004. Howle also ran track for the Sooners for one season, earning All-Conference honors in the heptathlon.

Howle played at Stoughton High School in Wisconsin, where she was the school's all-time leader in assists.

She married Tyler Howle in 2009.
