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