Ayala Named County Player of the Year

Tatiana Ayala was recently recognized as Player of the Year for Monroe County, as voted by county varsity coaches.  Ayala is a Libero for the Lady Canes volleyball team and a defensive specialist who would pick up any hard driven spike. She was relentless in digging up the balls and hustled all over the court to save a ball.

Ayala racked up 114 digs this season, even with the season being cut short from the Hurricane. Coach Kathy Ets-Hokin believes that number would probably have  doubled , if the Lady Canes had played the 12 games missed due to Irma.
She was the captain and leader on the court. Ayala never gave up on herself, getting to a ball or the team. She played with her heart. Ayala scored 18 aces, 9 backrow kills, and many assists. She was always teaching the younger players how to dive, roll, and play defense.

“As a coach, I am so proud of Tatiana,” said Ets-Hokin.  “On and off the court, she is an outstanding student athlete who always demonstrates perseverance, leadership, a great work ethic, patience, and a high competitive side to wanting to do her best.”

Students Earn PowerPoint Certifications

Freshman Grace Matthews and senior Tyler Arnold recently became the first students at Coral Shores to earn their 2016 Microsoft Office Specialist PowerPoint certifications this school year. These two outstanding students passed the PowerPoint exam of the MOS course early in the year and were the first ready to certify.

They will now work to certify in Microsoft Word and Excel to achieve their full Microsoft Office Specialist certifications and will earn three credits at any Florida university or college, a merit diploma, and up to $500 from the Monroe Compute$ incentive program.  Way to go!

Mandozzi Named Boys Basketball Coach

Coach Jarrod Mandozzi joins Coral Shores as Head Varsity Boys Basketball Coach. Coach Mandozzi joins Coral Shores with an extensive background coaching successfully at the college, high school, and national level AAU coaching both boys and girls programs. 

“I’m extremely excited to join Coral Shores,” Mandozzi said.   “At the end of the day, the opportunity to have more kids in the program like we do at Coral Shores, to help develop what I know can ultimately be the premier basketball program in the Keys,  is something that is a special opportunity.”

Most recently, he coached Island Christian School’s boys varsity program to their most successful season in years last season after leaving the corporate world where he served many years as the Chief Sales and Customer Officer and Executive Vice President for Altegra Health in Weston, FL. 

“We are thrilled and honored to have Jarrod take over our boys’ basketball program,”  said Hurricane Athletic Director Rich Russell.  “He obviously brings a ton of experience –much at the collegiate level—to our program. I had a chance to observe him last year at Island Christian. I couldn’t have been more impressed. He transformed their team in a way I wouldn’t have thought possible. Just as significantly, I watched his interactions and saw the positive impact he had on each of their players.”

“Among the things that most impressed me about Coach Mandozzi was his organization, structure and discipline. My experience suggests that these are the cornerstones of ALL highly successful athletic programs. He has already indicated that he will be incorporating major portions of playbooks he used while coaching at the college level. I think our kids are going to love playing for him and will be highly enriched by his leadership.”
Prior to joining corporate America, Mandozzi served as the top assistant Women’s Coach at Emmanuel College in Boston where they won numerous GNAC league titles and made an appearance at the Division III Final Four. He also led numerous Greater Boston AAU programs where he won a number of local and regional championships and finished second in the country with two different teams. Over the course of his coaching career, he has coached many players that have gone on to have successful collegiate and professional careers. 
Mandozzi is a full-time resident of Islamorada with his wife Maria and daughters Brooke (11) and Jenna (10).
