Lem steps down from BHS volleyball team

Battlefield volleyball head coach Chris Lem announced earlier this month that he is retiring from the volleyball program after spending eight years with the Bobcats as either a head coach or assistant coach.
Though Lem still plans to continue teaching at Battlefield, he explained that after 15 years of coaching in some capacity, he just wanted a break from coaching so he could "focus on teaching, family life, and other paths," he wrote in an e-mail.
Assistant coach Meghan Johnson is taking over as the leader over the varsity squad for the fall season.
She previously ran the junior varsity team.
Lem first began coaching high school teams in Prince William County in 1998, when he lead the Brentsville District junior varsity squad from an 0-10 start to the regular season to the Bull Run District regular season and tournament championships.
Players shaved his head in celebration afterward, he recalled in an e-mail.
Lem transferred next to Forest Park, a team that peaked in 2003 when the varsity squad won the Group AAA state championship with a 25-1 record while he served as one of three assistants.
He took over the varsity head coach position for Battlefield in 2007 after years as an assistant and helped guide to the team to its first regional berth in 2011.
This past season, Battlefield started out 0-9 but went on a tear once the Cedar Run District season started by cobbling together a 7-3 record, earning a home game during the district tournament.
