Annie Lybarger Returns to WGHS as Head Girls Basketball Coach

WEBSTER GROVES, MO, June 16, 2022:  Webster Groves High School is pleased to announce that Annie Lybarger will be their new girls basketball head coach.  Coach Lybarger will also join the physical education teaching staff at WGHS as well.  

Coach Lybarger has been teaching and the PE department chair at Westminster Christian Academy since 2008 and was a varsity assistant coach in their girls basketball program for 12 years.  Coach Lybarger graduated from WGHS with the Class of 2000 (then as Annie Westhoff) and was one of the top women to ever play basketball for the Statesmen.  She is the 4th all-time leading scorer with 1,442 points and one of only three women in WGHS history to score over 1000 points and also grab over 700 rebounds in their career.  She went on to play basketball at Truman State University where she also scored over 1000 points in her college career.  She was inducted into the Statesmen Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.

WGHS Athletic Director Jerry Collins said, “We are very fortunate to have Coach Lybarger come home to Webster Groves and take over our program.  I am confident that she will immediately connect with our students and be a strong addition to our coaching and teaching staff.”

About her new position, Coach Lybarger said, "I am humbled and honored to not only be a Statesman once again but to have the privilege of being a part of this amazing program. Many of my most cherished memories came from my time as a Webster Groves basketball player and I am excited to help these student-athletes create lasting memories of their own! I am looking forward to continuing and building upon the established success of the Webster Groves Women's Basketball program. "

Former WGHS head boys basketball coach and most recently an assistant to the girls program, Jay Blossom says that this is a “Big time hire for Webster Groves! Annie is one of the all time greats in Statesmen Basketball history.  Annie is a terrific coach and more importantly an outstanding teacher and role model for our student athletes. Couldn’t be happier for our returning girls and I’m excited to see Annie continue to build on the program's recent successes. Welcome home Annie!”
