Notes from the Coach

My name is Kim Morgal and I am extremely excited to be joining LoneStar this year as the Head Coach for 15EP! Volleyball has been a passion of mine for over 17 years of my life. The sport has given me so much and I can only try to give a small part of that back. I have been blessed over the past 17 years to have had some amazing coaches, teammates, and colleagues that inspired me both on and off the court. I truly believe that everything plays a role in your experience with volleyball and I hope to be able to help make some young players lasting memories this upcoming season.

A little bit about my background….

I played high school volleyball at a 6A powerhouse in Edmond, Oklahoma (Edmond Santa Fe) and was a 3-year starter, 3-year All City player, and All-State MVP my senior year. I then went on to earn a full scholarship to the University of Central Oklahoma where I was a 4 year starter as an outside hitter. Was named offensive player of the week multiple times and made two NCAA National Tournament appearances during my 4 years. Upon graduation I was offered a Graduate Assistant position with Oklahoma City University’s Volleyball team. After obtaining my Masters in Education at OCU, I then became the Assistant Coach at  St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX, a NCAA Division II Private University. I spent 6 seasons at St. Edward’s University as the Assistant Coach before leaving to pursue a different career path. Throughout my career I also have 13 years of experience coaching club volleyball both in Oklahoma for 9 years and Austin Juniors Volleyball Club for 4 years.

I am an extremely competitive person, but I like to have fun as well. I truly believe that volleyball is more than just the sport itself. It teaches young women that we can be strong, independent, competitive, successful, and hold ourselves to a higher standard, not just in athletics but in life. My very first role model was the late Pat Summitt (Head Coach for the Tennessee Lady Vol’s basketball program), she was the epitome of what a coach should be in my opinion. She was extremely tough, caring, lead by example with the utmost integrity and character, and she had an undeniable passion for teaching. These are the things that I hold myself to as a coach and I am looking forward to bringing that to the young women who play for me here at LoneStar!

Can’t wait to get started….let’s make it a great year!
