Azusa, Calif. – Azusa Pacific head coach Gerry Gregory earned the 100th win of his Azusa Pacific career last night with a 3-1 win over NAIA-member Alliant International in San Diego, Calif.
Gregory, who is in his sixth season at the helm of Cougar volleyball, now holds a 100-60 (.625) career record at Azusa Pacific, making him just the second coach in school history to surpass the 100-win plateau.
In 9 seasons, former head coach Lori Kildal was 117-129 (.476) from 1987-95 and was previously the only other Cougar coach to eclipse 100 wins.
Gregory, who is in his 21st season on the collegiate level, spent 15 years as a head coach on the NCAA Division I level with 3-year stints at Oregon State and Wyoming, and a 9-year run at Oregon, where 3 of his Duck teams advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
Azusa Pacific, which is currently 7-2 and set to host its first-ever Azusa Pacific Volleyball Invitational this weekend, has recorded 3 straight 20-win seasons under Gregory, a program first. In 2000, he guided the Cougars to a 25-12 mark and an trip to the NAIA Tournament for the first time since 1990.
Gregory is Azusa Pacific’s second winningest coach both in wins (100) and winning percentage (.625). He needs just 17 more victories to surpass Kildal as the program’s all-time winningest coach.
