Head Coach Sarah Futo

SC-2-cropThe 2020 season marks Sarah Futo’s seventh season as head coach of the FPD varsity volleyball team.

Futo led the Lady Vikings to a 19-16 record in 2016 and a first round appearance in the GHSA Class-A State Tournament.

In her second season as the head coach, Futo led the Lady Vikings to the first round of the GHSA Class-A State Tournament and finished with an overall record of 27-19 and 8-3 in Area-2 play. The win total (27) marks the highest in program history since the sport moved to the varsity level in 2012.

In her first year as head coach, the Lady Vikings advanced to the GHSA Class-A State Tournament before falling to Savannah Country Day. Altogether, FPD finished with a 21-19 record, the first winning season in program history.

Futo made her way to FPD from Truett-McConnell College in Cleveland, GA, where she earned a two-year scholarship playing volleyball for the Bears.

Her volleyball experience isn’t the only upside.

Futo also understands the importance of ministering to others, having lead youth camps in Venezuela for three years and assisting in various Vacation Bible Schools.

She served on the Truett-McConnell cheerleading team for two years and graduated in 2014 with a B.S. in Middle Grades Education.

Futo is married to her husband, Justin, and they have one son, Deacon.
