The future of Clover High’s tradition-rich volleyball program is in good hands following the addition of Tamara Jacobus, who takes over the Blue Eagles following a very successful run at Indian Land High School.
Jacobus, who has been named region coach of the year in 14 of her 17 years with the Warriors, brings a wealth of experience to the Clover program, including a stellar postseason record. In just her fourth year at the helm, she led Indian Land to the school’s first ever athletic state championship in 1996. Her teams also won state titles in 1997, 2001, and 2004, and she was named the 2004-2005 South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association coach of the year.
In her 17 seasons with Indian Land, she produced five Class A players of the year, 14 region players of the year, and 33 all-region selections. She boasts an overall winning percentage of 73 percent with a record of 302-114. In addition to volleyball, she also coached basketball where she compiled at 277-138 record in 18 seasons.
At Clover, Jacobus, a National Board Certified Teacher, will teach math. She was the Lancaster County School District High School Teacher of the Year in 2011.
