Dan Harrison (Seventh Season)
The 2014-15 season is Dan Harrison’s seventh year leading the Larks. His inaugural campaign resulted in a 17-14 record, the most wins ever for a first year women’s basketball coach at Hesston College. That season two players received post season honors—sophomore Katelyn Nussbaum was named Academic All American and freshman Kari Heusinkveld was named to the all-region team.
Harrison coached successful programs in basketball and golf at a variety of levels. He coached Kansas high school boys basketball at Minneola, Garden City, and Campus High School (Haysville). He also coached the Wichita State University women’s golf team from 1989 to 1993, winning the Missouri Valley Conference championship and garnering “Coach of the Year” honors in 1992.
Harrison joined the Hesston College faculty in 2004. He teaches psychology and education courses. “It has been a wonderful opportunity to return and coach at the college where I began my collegiate playing career (basketball and golf, 1977-79). My role is to help players to develop their gifts and to encourage them to bring out the best in themselves and their teammates. We want to be a caring and supportive community.”
