Head Coach - Women's Volleyball
Kristy Bailey Parrill has led the reconstruction of Cincinnati State’s new women’s volleyball program, and the teams have made great progress during her first two years.
In 2014—the second season for the program—the Surge compiled a 20-19 record while playing a schedule that included 20 teams ranked in the NJCAA Top 20. Cincinnati State drew attention by advancing to the winners’ bracket championship game of the district tournament. Rebecca Robben earned first team all-conference, all-region and all-tournament honors.
Building a volleyball program from scratch is an experience that Parrill brought to Cincinnati State.
While a student at Northern Kentucky University, Parrill organized a highly-competitive club volleyball program, also serving as the team’s player-coach. The experience gave Parrill broad insight to the responsibilities of coaching and developing a team as she handled the duties of scheduling, player recruiting and development, practice and game preparation, event management and fund-raising.
Parrill has also played the sport on the community college level, performing on the Owens Community College teams of 2005 and 2006. Owens, one of the power programs of NJCAA Region 12 and OCCAC champion in 11 of the past 12 seasons, won the regional title her sophomore season.
Parrill completed her BA in integrated studies at Northern Kentucky in 2012. While playing and coaching at NKU, she found time to hone her skills serving as assistant volleyball coach at Cooper High School and working as an assistant and clinician at the Northern Kentucky Junior Volleyball Club.
