About Coach Lisa

Lisa has been playing and coaching volleyball for the past 40+ years.  This will be her 5th year coaching at West E.  
 
Lisa is a graduate of Iroquois High School in Erie, where she played volleyball and softball.  She was a 4 year letterman in volleyball and played first base on the 1982 State Champion and 1981 State Runner-up softball teams. She received the Female Athletic Leadership Award and Most Outstanding Senior Athlete Award.  Lisa was recently inducted into the Iroquois Hall of Fame in 2015.

After high school, Lisa went on to play college volleyball at Penn State-Behrend. She was named to NAIA District 18 Second team volleyball squads, 1983 and 1984. She graduated with an Associates degree in Liberal Arts and began her coaching career as assistant coach at her alma mater, Iroquois. Lisa transferred to Edinboro University and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Health and Physical Education and a minor in Athletic Coaching.  At Edinboro, she earned the Most Outstanding Senior Award, the Captain's Award and was named to the PSAC West All-Tournament and All-Conference volleyball teams, 1985 and 1986.  Having caught the coaching bug, Lisa continued as an assistant at Edinboro for a season then onto Seneca High School and then back to Iroquois for her first Head Coaching position. 

Moving to the Pittsburgh area, Lisa began a 13 year run as the head girls' coach at Riverview and a 3 year run as the assistant boys' coach at Deer Lakes.  Add to the resume, numerous summer camp positions along with 10 summers at the Saint Francis Individual Skills Camp. Club coaching experiences besides West E include the Spartans volleyball club and the original Pittsburgh Golden Triangle club.  Lisa also coached her daughter, Coach Rachel Amerson, at Freeport for 3 years and her daughter, Courtney, learned to serve overhand while Lisa was the assistant coach with the girls' program at Deer Lakes.  For many years, she played on adult women's teams in the OVR and co-ed teams in tournaments and weekly leagues in the Pittsburgh area.  
 
Lisa works at the Aldi Warehouse and lives in Sarver with her younger daughter, Courtney.  Courtney played for West E for 3 years and is an All Conference setter on the Thiel College Volleyball team.  Now that college ball is done, Lisa gets to shift gears and coach the 14's with her older daughter, Rachel.  Rachel was a Senior on Freeport's first WPIAL championship team.  Volleyball is a great passion in the grubby house!   Lisa is excited for another great season of volleyball at West E!
