Yerty Adds Dan Georgalas To Volleyball Staff

He comes to Wyoming from Stephen F. Austin

Dan Georgalas will begin his fourth season with the Cowgirls in 2016. During the 2015 season, Georgalas was instrumental in guiding the Cowgirl defense that held its opponents to just a .159 hitting efficiency, while UW additionally ranked sixth in the NCAA with 3.01 blocks per set and eighth with 349 total team blocks.

Reed Copeland became the third Cowgirl to be named the MW Freshman of the Year after leading the nation in blocks and blocks per set. Georgalas helped Copeland, Laura Beach and Kayla Henderson all finish the season within the MW’s top-10 in blocks, while as a team, the Cowgirls paced the MW in blocks and ranked second in opponent hitting efficiency.

In 2014, he helped mentor the Cowgirls middle blockers that as a unit ranked eighth in the NCAA averaging 2.89 blocks per set in 2013 and 46th in 2014. He also helped former Cowgirl Erin Kirby rank second nationally in blocks per set in 2013 at 1.77 per frame.

He came to Wyoming from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas where he spent the two seasons as an Assistant Coach with the women's volleyball program. While there, he was involved in the on-court training with the middle blockers, outside hitters and passers, plus played a large role in the recruiting process for the Ladyjacks. SFA finished with a 22-12 overall record in 2012 and had three players garner All-southland Conference awards.

Prior to that, he was involved in several aspects of the volleyball program at the University of Kansas. He served as a volunteer assistant coach, which involved assisting with on-court training and coordinating team travel. He also was a camp director for the KU summer camps. During that time, Georgalas was the director of the Jayhawk Juniors Volleyball Club, which offered clinics for Lawrence-area youth, and coached for the Lawrence Juniors Volleyball Club.

A native of Chicago, Ill., Georgalas began playing his senior year of high school and earned a starting position at middle hitter halfway through the season. His state-ranked Buffalo Grove High School team finished 30-7 overall and fourth in the state while Georgalas was voted the Most Improved Player.

He went onto to start for the KU men's club volleyball team for two seasons and helped the Jayhawks qualify for the NIRSA National Tournament in the spring 2010.

Georgalas graduated from Kansas in December 2010 with a degree in sports management and a minor in business. He is engaged to Vivian Rugsland.
