Molly Maassen will join the Helias Catholic High School staff as head coach for the girls tennis team in the 2022–23 school year.

“Mrs. Maassen brings years of tennis experience and a love for the game that will serve our student-athletes well,” said Dwayne Clingman, Helias Catholic athletic and activities director. “We’re happy to welcome her back to Helias Catholic.”

Mrs. Maassen is a 1992 graduate of Helias Catholic. She has a degree in marketing from Rockhurst College, where she played NCAA Division 2 tennis.

“I began playing tennis at a very young age. My love of the game led to years of lessons from Dennis Van Der Meer coaches and attending a Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy camp,” Mrs. Maassen said. “I am very excited to be coaching the sport I love at my alma mater and look forward to a great season.”

Mrs. Maassen lives in Linn, where she has served as a substitute teacher at Linn High School and volunteer at St. George Catholic School. She and her husband, Tom, have two sons, Adam and Caleb.
