Skyhawk Volleyball | Alex Evans - Student Assistant
Alex Evans is in his first season as a student assistant on the UT Martin volleyball coaching staff.
Evans' responsibilities include supporting with practices both on the court and behind the scenes, game day management and assisting with statistics and video operations.
A Mulvane, Kan. native, Evans joins the Skyhawk volleyball program after two seasons as a student-athlete for the UT Martin baseball team. The 6-2 right-hander established himself as one of the best pitchers in program history, ranking fourth in career victories (16), seventh in saves (five) and 10th in strikeouts (140) from 2016-17.
Evans' senior campaign included eight wins, 28 appearances, 73 strikeouts and four saves - each of which ranks in the top-10 in Skyhawk single-season history. He also notched eight wins and tossed 88.1 innings as a junior in 2016, ranking in the top-10 in school history in those statistical categories as well.
Last season, Evans helped UT Martin to a Division-I record 25 wins. In addition, he guided the program to a school-record 12 Ohio Valley Conference victories and its first Ohio Valley Conference Tournament appearance since 2011. He earned Tennessee Sports Writers Association Pitcher of the Week honors on March 8, 2016.
An avid intramural volleyball player, Evans attended Barton Community College (2013-15) in Great Bend, Kan. and Mulvane High School (2009-13) before transferring to UT Martin. He is currently pursuing his bachelor's degree in accounting.
