Kailee May | Assistant Coach
In July of 2017, Kailee May was named an assistant coach for the Ladyjacks, signaling her return to the collegaite coaching ranks following an impressive six-year span as a head coach at the club level.
An individual who has familiarized herself with the club volleyball scene in the Dallas area, May's most recent stop was as the recruiting coordinator and head coach for the Tejas Volleyball Club's under-16 team. Beginning in 2014, May took charge of a group of 10 players who competed in tournaments around the nation at the highest level of club volleyball. Her 2017 club finished third in the nation at the Girls National Volleyball Championships in the under-16 division.
In addition to her coaching duties for Tejas, May signed on as the varsity volleyball coach at All Saints' Episcopal School in 2015 until the summer of 2017. During her first season at the helm of the program, she led her squad to a 31-11 record and a runner-up finish in the SPC.
May began her time as a coach at the club level in the summer of 2012 by taking command of the LoneStar Volleyball Club. Through her two years in charge of the program, LoneStar advanced to national qualifier championships and USA Junior National Championships.
As a student-athlete, May attended Fordham University in the Bronx, N.Y., and was a four-year letter winner on the Rams' volleyball team. An active member of Fordham's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, May earned a spot on the Atlantic 10 Conference's All-Rookie Team as a freshman and was named to no fewer than four different All-Tournament Teams throughout her collegiate career.
By the time her collegiate career was a matter of record, May had etched her name all over the Rams' record book. Currently, she still maintains a spot in many of the program's top-ten career statistical charts including kills, attack attempts, kills per set average, service aces, digs, sets played and matches played.
Upon graduating from Fordham in 2011, May relocated to Colby, Kan., for a short time and served as an assistant coach at Colby Community College. Before entering the club coaching circuit, May spent four months in Germany in early 2012 as an outside hitter and assistant coach for the Geraer Volleyball Club - a professional women's volleyball team.
