Phone: 620-278-4324

Justin Morris is in his 15th season as the Head Women's Soccer Coach at Sterling College. Coach Morris coached the men's team also up until December (2006) before stepping down to focus more on the women's team. At Sterling, Morris has amassed a 158-230-15 overall record and a 106-140-10 record with the women’s program.

In 2012, the Lady Warriors finished tied for third place in the KCAC under Morris and made it to the KCAC semifinals before falling to Kansas Wesleyan. Sterling finished 13-6 and 5-4 in the KCAC. Two Lady Warriors earned All-KCAC First Team honors and Kenya Renteria was named the KCAC Newcomer of the Year.

The 2010 Lady Warriors, led by Morris, finished the season in third place in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) with a 10-8-2 overall record, 5-3-1 in the conference before losing to Ottawa University in the semi-final round of the KCAC Championship Tournament.  Senior Kylie Yates was named an NAIA Honorable Mention All-American and KCAC Offensive Player of the Year.

Morris led the men's team to the NAIA Region IV tournament in 05' and 06 reaching the semifinals in 06' and the women to the Region IV quarterfinals in 2006. Morris was recognized as the NAIA Region IV Men's Coach of the Year in 2006.

In the 2005 season Morris coached the Warriors and the Lady Warriors to the best record in school history 14-5-1 and the Warriors qualified for the NAIA Region IV Tournament for the first time in school history. He was also named the KCAC Women's Coach of the Year following the season.

Morris became the head soccer coach at Sterling College prior to the 1999 season. After completing his eligibility at SC in 1998, Morris took the head coaching position in hopes of rebuilding both the men's and women's team to prominent programs in the KCAC and NAIA.

Morris first came to the SC as a player in 1997 after completing a two-year stint at Allen County Community College.

Morris had a successful career at Sterling as a two-year starter for the Warriors. In his junior season at SC, the Warriors finished second in the KCAC with a 6-2 mark in the conference and 12-6 record overall. In Morris' final season as a Warrior, Sterling finished third in the KCAC. Both seasons the Warriors qualified and participated in the KCAC tournament.

In addition to his duties as Women's Soccer Coach, Morris also serves as the Assistant Athletic Director. Coach Morris is also Co-Owner of a local t-shirt company MR TEE LLP.

Coach Morris and his wife Karna and their three children Christina, Kayla and Cameron reside in Sterling. Karna works at Nickerson Elementary School as a 5th grade teacher.
