Success in Volleyball


Daryl Meyer was an assistant volleyball coach for two years at LeRoy Ostrander, Minnesota, and then came to Harris-Lake Park for 21 years as head coach. He has resigned his coaching position for next year in order to allow more family time. Coach Meyer leaves the program with impressive stats. His 21-year record was 391-245-4 and included three Cornbelt Conference titles, three regional final games, and 16 winning seasons in a row.

A lot of memories came with those 21 years, but when he was asked what his most memorable seasons were, he commented, “All are memorable. Some great things happen every year, and there are some great opportunities that the kids show yearly. Every season has its own highlights.”

Coach Meyer does plan to stay involved in the sport, just not as a coach. He will follow his daughter Taylor’s seasons at Northwestern and hopefully pick up some volleyball officiating as he does in wrestling.

This summer will definitely be different for Mr. Meyer. He used to organize lifting twice a week and open gym once a week, take the players to a team camp for 2-4 days, attend clinics, and have ongoing strategy planning and game prep. Volleyball was typically in the background the whole summer. Now when he goes on family vacation in August, he will not have to come back and start practice right away; it will be a more relaxed vacation.

Mr. Meyer said, “Thank you to all of the administration, players, and families for a successful 21 years. I feel bad that I didn’t have the training I needed to help the program more for the first five years, but thanks for believing in the process. I was fortunate to have people who would listen and work hard for a common purpose.”

Thank you, Mr. Meyer, for your years of dedication to the volleyball program and enjoy your more relaxed summer vacation!
