Illinois State University’s all-time winningest volleyball coach, Julie Morgan, a familiar face to many at Salt Lake Community College, was inducted recently into the ISU Athletics Percy Family Hall of Fame.

Morgan, who has taught volleyball, Flexibility for Fitness, racquetball and other courses at SLCC, led ISU to seven NCAA Tournament appearances from 1987-99. She amassed a 289-133 win/loss record at ISU for 13 seasons as head coach of the volleyball team. She was a five-time Gateway/Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year.

Morgan was among four Redbirds inducted into the ISU’s Hall of Fame during an Oct. 13 ceremony at the university.

“This honor belongs to so many people who made it possible for Illinois State Volleyball to be recognized as one of the premiere volleyball programs in the country,” Morgan said. “The players, coaches, staff, administrators, fans, parents, the president, the institution and the community all deserve the recognition. I am deeply grateful to receive this honor on behalf of all of them.”

From 2000-03 Morgan was the head volleyball coach at SLCC and taught in the Health and Lifetime Activities (HLA) department. She left SLCC from 2003-06 to coach volleyball at the University of Hawaii-Hilo and returned in 2007 to teach full time in SLCC’s HLA. She retired from full-time teaching in 2016 and is now an adjunct family member at the college.
