Kris Terrillion, a popular teacher and successful coach, built a volleyball dynasty during her 29-year career at LaFayette High School. While her commitment to high school volleyball is beyond description, Terrillion had the opportunity to coach Syracuse University for three years (1983-1985), earning Big East Coach of the Year honors in 1984.

But at the high school level is where Terrillion’s success is unrivaled. Her won-lost record for 29 years (1972-1982, 1987-2005) as varsity coach is an astounding 506-76. She led her teams to 26 league championships, 17 sectional championships and 10 regional championships.

Terrillion received her BS in education at Cortland State and her Masters at Ithaca College. She began her teaching career at LaFayette in 1972, where she started the girls sports program. Over the years, she coached a number of other sports including soccer, softball and basketball. Her sports involvement has extended to the Empire State Games, both as coordinator and Open Division coach.

Terrillion was also a member of the USA East Volleyball Team. She has been inducted into the Cortland State Hall of Fame (1992). She received the Walt Disney American Teacher Award (1991) and has won numerous Section III honors. She was honored in 1989 with a national coaching award - the Volleyball Coach Silver Award.
