Fort Hays State volleyball coach Jessica Wood-Atkins has announced the hiring of Trevor Sullivan as assistant volleyball coach. Sullivan’s time as a Tiger began on Monday, January 11.
“We are excited to welcome Trevor Sullivan to the FHSU Volleyball staff,” said Wood-Atkins. “As a volleyball player, Trevor was recruited out of high school in Illinois to play collegiately at Grand View University as a middle blocker. His coaching has been influenced by some incredible volleyball minds.
“His most recent stint was working in the Coaching Education Department at USA Volleyball while coaching with the nationally ranked volleyball club, Colorado Juniors. I am excited for the perspective and experience he will bring to both recruiting and our front line.”
Sullivan comes to Hays after spending two seasons as head girls volleyball coach at Palmer Ridge High School in Monument, Colo. He led the team to the Class 4A state tournament each year, winning two regional titles and finishing the 2019 season as state runner-up. The Bears were 39-18 in his two seasons at PRHS. He was named the 5A/4A Volleyball Coach of the Year by Gazette Preps after the Bears’ run to the state championship game in 2019.
While in the Centennial State, Sullivan also served as an assistant for the nationally ranked Colorado Juniors Volleyball Club for two-and-a-half years. Additionally, Sullivan has worked in the coaching education department at USA Volleyball.
A native of Oswego, Ill., Sullivan played collegiately at Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa from 2012-2015, helping the Vikings to a third-place finish at the 2014 NAIA National Men’s Volleyball Invitational. GVU posted a record of 76-35 in his four years as a Viking.
