Brandon Skweres
GAFFNEY, S.C. -- Limestone College and vice president for intercollegiate athletics Mike Cerino have announced that Brandon Skweres, after serving as the interim head coach this past season, has officially been elevated to full-time head coach effective immediately.

"Brandon has been an essential part of the improvement of our women's volleyball program and the continued success of the men's volleyball team," Cerino said. "We look forward to him leading our women's team to new heights in the coming years."

Having served both the men's and women's program's for the past three seasons, last year as the head coach for both, Skweres now takes over both programs in a permanent role. He was named the head men's coach on Aug. 21, 2013, and led the squad to a record 16 wins (16-14) on their way to a third consecutive Conference Carolinas tournament berth.

In his role as interim women's coach he helped lead the Saints to a four-win improvement from the 2012 season and their first appearance in the Conference Carolinas tournament since 2011. Not only did they make the field, doing so as the No. 6 seed, they upset No. 3-seeded Mount Olive 3-1 before falling by the same score at 32-4 juggernaut King in the semifinals. It was their first appearance in the semis since the 2009 campaign.

Prior to taking over as head coach of both programs he served as an assistant for both.
