Saying Goodbye and Hello By Jim Keck

May 01, 2017 02:20PM, Published by Elena Hutslar, Categories: Sports+Recreation



Long time basketball coach, Troy Faulk, announced that he will be stepping down effective immediately.  Coach Faulk shared his difficult decision with the team on April 25. Saying goodbye to a program he has been dedicated to for nine years wasn’t easy.  Faulk always expected his student-athletes to be all in, and has the same expectation for himself.  His new job and family commitments have led him to take some time away from the team and the sport he loves.

                  Coach Faulk has coached at College Park since 2008, serving as a varsity assistant.  He was on staff for three DVAL championships, and the Nor Cal /State Finals run in 2013.  In 2015, Coach Faulk took over the head coaching position, leading the team to a DVAL championship season, NCS birth and posting a 22-7 record.  During Coach Faulk’s three years as head coach, they posted a 49-33 overall record, won two DVAL championships, and advanced to NCS each season.

                  One of Coach Faulk’s key contributions during his tenure has been the College Park team room in the small gym.  The space has lockers, record boards, team benches, and a flat screen TV for teams to take advantage of.  This room is not only used by the basketball programs but our volleyball teams as well.  Troy made it a priority to push this project to completion with paperwork and fundraising.

                  Coach Faulk’s lasting contribution will always be the young men he has mentored during his time here at CP.  He has always asked his players for their best and they have responded in kind.  His professionalism, attention to detail, and passion for the game will be missed.  There were handshakes and more than a few teary eyes when Troy discussed his decision with the team. 

Thank you Coach Faulk for your dedication and service here at College Park.  You will be missed.

                  College Park would like to welcome the new girls’ volleyball coach, Melissa Ralls.  Coach Ralls played for two years at Merced College as a Libero.  She brings seven years of coaching experience to College Park, having coached at the middle school, high school and club levels.  Coach Ralls currently coaches at Pacific Rim Volleyball Academy in the offseason.  She has met with the team and will be announcing her staff and plans for team workouts shortly.  Coach Ralls fills the position previously held by Kent Perkins who stepped down for family and health reasons.
