Clearwater volleyball coach Kara Betourne has stepped down after accepting a teaching position at Learning Gate Community School in Lutz.

Betourne has been Clearwater's coach for two years. Last season the Tornadoes were 23-6 and advanced to the Class 7A region quarterfinals.

"I've lived in Tampa for three years and the commute has been draining on me both physically and economically,'' Betourne said in a text. "My new school is 10 minutes away. I'm excited but I'll miss Clearwater.''

No replacement has been named for Betourne and applications for the vacancy are being accepted.
