Kellee Roesel

Head Coach

Kellee Roesel enters her 11th season at the helm of the Regals in 2016.

In 2015, Roesel and the Regals reached the ultimate prize by winning the first NCAA Division III National Championship in Cal Lutheran history.

She continues to be one of the top Division III coaches in the country. In 2015 she guided the Regals to a 31-5 record and the first title in program history after winning the NCAA Division III Thousand Oaks Regional and sharing a sixth straight SCIAC crown. A trio of AVCA All-America selections paced the pack and Kevin Judd was honored as the Assitant Coach of the Year, aiding in the success.

In 2014 Roesel led CLU to a 29-3 record, its fifth straight SCIAC title, third straight SCIAC Postseason Tournament title and seventh straight NCAA Tournament appearance. The Regals led the nation in Kills Per Set (14.17) and Assists Per Set (13.21) and Roesel was named AVCA West Region Coach of the Year for the third time in her career.

The 2013 season was a banner year for the Regals and Roesel. Already the all-time winningest coach in program history, Roesel led the Regals to the 2013 Division III National Championship game were they narrowly fell in five-set thriller. The Regals had the best season in program history, going 35-2, including a 29 game win-streak. In addtition to capturing her fourth straight SCIAC title, Roesel also collected her 200th win while coach at CLU and saw her players, Kylie McLogan and Jackie Russell ascend to the top of the school record charts in kills and digs, respectively.

Roesel was named the 2012 DIII American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) West Region Coach of the Year after guiding Cal Lutheran to their third-straight SCIAC championship and second consecutive NCAA Tournament No. 1 West Region seed. It was her second coach of the year honor in the past three seasons.

Dealt with a season-ending injury to two-time All-American setter Jackie Russell in the third game of the season, Roesel and her staff were forced to alter their personnel and strategy in 2012 and the results paid dividends. The Regals scored 29 victories, second-most in school history, and had a 16-game winning streak to close out the regular season. CLU also advanced to the NCAA West Regional Finals for the second consecutive season and ended the season with a No. 10 national ranking in the final AVCA poll.

In 2011, Roesel and her staff guided CLU to a 29-7 record and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for only the third time in program history.

Roesel earned DIII (AVCA) West Region Coach of the Year for the first time in her career in 2010. She guided the Regals to a program record 29-match win streak and their first SCIAC title since 2005.

Roesel has produced at least one AVCA All-America player during each of her seven seasons at the helm of the Regals program. A trio of players have earned First Team All-American status including Kylie McLogan in 2012. First Team All-American Allison Kerr led all of NCAA Division III in kills in 2010.

She helped coach the 2005 men's team that was California State Champions.
