COACH ANN SCHILLING INDUCTED INTO AHSAA SPORTS HALL OF FAME

Coach Ann Schilling

The following is an excerpt from: Perseverance and Passion Has Highlighted Ann Schilling’s Journey to Hall of Fame, by Bill Plott, AHSAA Historian. To read the complete article, click here.


Ann Schilling’s journey to the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame started at the hands of a master. The Class of 2018 inductee played under the renowned Coach Becky Dickinson at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School. Coach Dickinson was in the very first class of inductees in 1991.

In a letter nominating Schilling to the Hall of Fame, Coach Dickinson wrote: “Before her high school tenure with me even began, Ann fell during summer team camp and broke her right arm. Other athletes might have let that discourage them, but not Ann. She stayed at summer camp and continued to work out. She came to every volleyball practice and game, taking statistics and stepping in wherever she could. She even taught herself to shoot a basketball left-handed.”

A native of Mobile, Schilling went from McGill-Toolen to Auburn University where she played basketball for four years, walking on and earning a scholarship by her sophomore year. She stayed a fifth year at Auburn to play volleyball when the program was reinstated.

With college-level varsity experience in basketball and volleyball under her belt, she accepted the position of physical education teacher, basketball and volleyball coach at Bayside Academy in 1987. It was a perfect union. Schilling is now in her 31st season of teaching and coaching at Bayside.

That career, by the numbers, includes the following:

  • 23 state volleyball championships, four runners-up
  • 16 consecutive state champions 2002-2017, an Alabama record and second in the nation, and 19 in 20 years since 1998
  • More than 1,400 wins, first among state active coaches and second in the state all-time
  • 6 Mobile Press Register Super 12 Coach of the Year awards
  • 5 Birmingham News Coach of the Year awards
  • 7 selections as AHSAA all-star coach
  • National Federation of High Schools Volleyball Coach of the Year award in 2010

Additionally, Schilling has received two John L. Finley Awards for Superb Achievement as a coach and an R. L. Lindsay Service Award for club volleyball. She is founder and director of the Eastern Shore Volleyball Club.

She was elected to the Bayside Academy Hall of Fame in 2004 and to the Mobile Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.

Coach Dickinson said she saw Schilling develop and grow into a superb leader. “Looking back at her outstanding career, it may come as a surprise that Ann was not a born leader,” Dickinson said. “During her senior year, the captain of the volleyball team missed one of our tournaments, and I watched as my team floundered, leaderless.   A few timeouts later, when I asked Ann and her fellow senior to take charge, I watched her step onto the court and step into her own. After that, nothing Ann did surprised me.

“I was not surprised when she started and didn’t stop winning state championships. I was not surprised when Ann’s peers repeatedly recognized her coaching ability by voting her Coach of the Year. I was not surprised that she learned to take relatively unskilled young women and teach them game skills while building their confidence and leadership skills.”

And it is no surprise that Ann Schilling has now been inducted into the AHSAA Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

Coach Ann Schilling is one of 11 inductees to the Alabama High School Hall of Fame, Class of 2018. For a complete list of other 2018 inductees, please click here.
