Head Volleyball Coach: Larry Lewis

Larry LewisLarry Lewis heads into his second season as the Lady Bears head coach. Last season the Bears were coming off the heels of a year (2014) without even fielding a team, and they showed promising signs throughout the 2015 campaign. Under Lewis' tutelage, they were very competitive night in and night out as they finished 5-5 in Midwest Christian College Conference play and 8-17 overall, which included their first NCCAA Southwest Region win in over three years.

During the 2013 campaign he was a volunteer assistant for the Lady Bears. His previous volleyball coaching experience was at Haviland High School from 1978-1987. During that span his teams accumulated 141 wins and 32 loses, won 6 league championships, and qualified for the Kansas State Volleyball Tournament two times.

In his 35 years in education (Kansas and California), he has taught physical education 16 years, been an assistant principal 16 years, and been a principal for 3 years. He has coached basketball, volleyball, track, tennis, and softball at both the junior high and high school level. He has also served as the Director of Recreation for Rose Drive Friends Church in Yorba Linda, California for 19 years.

"It is a privilege to coach Barclay athletes who desire to be ambassadors for Christ at school, in the community and on the court. It is my desire to help each player grow first in Christ, and secondly, in their volleyball skills. Athletes are confronted with many types of circumstances that run parallel to life situations, and it is a perfect opportunity to build Christ-like character and eternal values. True victory only comes when athletes please the Lord with their effort, attitudes and actions on and off the court. My goal is to help athletes understand that they train and play for an audience of One- Jesus Christ," commented Lewis in response to his coaching philosophy.

Lewis received his BS in Christian Education from Fort Wayne Bible College (Fort Wayne, IN) and then continued his education at Friends University (Wichita, KS) where he received a BS in Physical Education/Health. He also obtained his MS in Education from Wichita State University (Wichita, KS).

He is married to Sheryl, for 37 years, and they have three children (Lyndie, Landon, and Brock). Lewis also currently serves as the Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Barclay College.
