Assistant Coach
Division 1

May came to UTA from Stephen F. Austin, where she helped lead the Ladyjacks back to the top of the Southland Conference. Upon arriving in Nacogdoches prior to the start of SFA's 2017 campaign, May helped turned the squad into one of the nation's most accurate attacking teams. SFA finished 2017 with a Southland Conference-leading hitting percentage of .253 which also stood as the 37th-best in the nation.  With May on their side, SFA posted a 27-8 record - good for the program's highest single-season win total in 10 years - and captured the Southland Conference regular season title for the ninth time in program history.  May began her assignment as one of the Ladyjacks' assistant coaches in July of 2017, signaling her return to the collegiate coaching ranks following an impressive six-year span as a head coach at the club level.  An individual who has familiarized herself with the club volleyball scene in the Dallas area, May's served as the recruiting coordinator and head coach for the Tejas Volleyball Club's under-16 team. Beginning in 2014, May took charge of a group of 10 players who competed in tournaments around the nation at the highest level of club volleyball. Her 2017 club finished third in the nation at the Girls National Volleyball Championships in the under-16 division.  In addition to her coaching duties for Tejas, May signed on as the varsity volleyball coach at All Saints' Episcopal School in 2015 until the summer of 2017. During her first season at the helm of the program, she led her squad to a 31-11 record and a runner-up finish in the SPC.  May began her time as a coach at the club level in the summer of 2012 by taking command of the LoneStarVolleyball Club. Through her two years in charge of the program, LoneStar advanced to national qualifier championships and USA Junior National Championships.  As a student-athlete, May attended Fordham University and was a four-year letter winner on the Rams' volleyball team. An active member of Fordham's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, May earned a spot on the Atlantic 10 Conference's All-Rookie Team. During her time in the Bronx, May etched her name all over the Rams' record book. Currently, she still maintains a spot in many of the program's top-ten career statistical charts including kills, attack attempts, kills per set average, service aces, digs, sets played and matches played.  Upon graduating from Fordham in 2011, May relocated to Colby, Kan., for a short time and served as an assistant coach at Colby Community College. Before entering the club coaching circuit, May spent four months in Germany in early 2012 as an outside hitter and assistant coach for the Geraer Volleyball Club - a professional women's volleyball team.
