MARSHALL -- Southwest Minnesota State University volleyball coach Terry Culhane is back home and recuperating after suffering a heart attack this past weekend.


Culhane, who coached Milroy, Tracy-Milroy-Balaton and Marshall to several prep state championships in basketball and volleyball, reportedly had a heart attack last Friday and was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital.

SMSU athletic communications director Kelly Loft told the Marshall Independent that Culhane returned to Marshall Monday after spending the weekend at the Avera Heart Hospitall in Sioux Falls, S.D. Culhane underwent an angiogram and had three stents inserted.

SMSU, the top seed in the NCAA Division II Central Region, lost to No. 4 Nebraska-Kearney in a semifinal match Saturday in Culhane's absence and finished the season 27-4.
