Leo Maltos

Head Coach

I have been coaching club volleyball for 6 years now. 4th year with SA Lightning. I'm in my 5th year as the Head Varsity Volleyball Coach at St. Gerard Catholic High School and Regional Middle School.

My coaching philosophy is revolved around growing the athlete as a whole. Not only do my practices center on improving skill but also attitude and focus. Success depends on the second letter and a great attitude will take you a long way.

Destinee Richie

Head Coach

I am a native Texan, born and raised in San Antonio. I discovered my love for playing sports at a very young age that quickly developed into a passion for volleyball. I played throughout my middle school and high school career and found myself pursuing it even stronger during college. While attending Panola College, East Carolina and Midwestern State University I was able to sharpen my skills and learn not only what it really means to be a team player, but a leader as well. Playing volleyball the majority of my life taught me the importance of self-discipline, time management, and how to be responsible.


I currently coach junior volleyball at USAV in the lone star volleyball region and play in the adult league when I can. I’ve coached the junior league for 11 seasons. I coached with SA Lightning for 4 seasons. This will be my 5th season with SA Lightning. My greatest accomplishment in coaching was having the pleasure of coaching a group 15’s at SA lightning. The whole season they placed in almost every tournaments. At Lone Star Regionals, they placed 2nd in the championship in 2015. As excited as I am with what I’ve accomplished so far, I’m more excited to see what’s in store for the future and my team.
