(Bismarck) The year-long search for a new athletic director and volleyball head coach at Bismarck High School has drawn to a close.

Katie Martinez will take Paula Aubuchon’s place as athletic director and Jessica Wilfong will be the new volleyball head coach. Aubuchon highlights the familiarity that Martinez has with Indians athletics.

Aubuchon says Martinez attended school while continuing her role as a P.E. teacher and coach.

Aubuchon has spent the last nine years representing the Bismarck Indians in the athletic director seat. Martinez will serve her new role as AD when the next school year begins in August.

North County’s Jessica Wilfong will assume the volleyball head coaching position at school year’s end. Aubuchon is very pleased with her resume of success.

Aubuchon is confident that Wilfong has the intagibles to carry on the success of the program.

Aubuchon has over 500 wins in nearly three decades running the Bismarck volleyball program. Wilfong finished with 26 wins and 25 losses in two years as head coach of North County.
