Lynsey Whisner
Lynsey Whisner
Title: Head Volleyball Coach
Phone: 740-587-5733
Email: whisnerl@denison.edu
Year: 8th Year

Lynsey Whisner returns for her eighth season as the head volleyball coach at Denison in 2014.

Denison is coming off a successful 2013 season which saw them finish fourth at the NCAC Tournament, and post a 20-9 overall record and a 6-2 mark in conference play. The Big Red won eight of its final 10 regular season matches to help secure a top-3 spot in the NCAC Tournament. Junior Emily Marguerite garnered first-time All-NCAC honors and became the third player in program history to be named NCAC Libero of the Year. Sophomore Elena Lein also earned second-team all-conference recognition.

Whisner and the Big Red had a solid showing in 2012, going 21-10 and finishing fourth in the NCAC with a 5-3 record.  Whisner was named the NCAC Coach of the Year for the first time in her career.  Last year's 21-win season built off a solid 2011 season which saw them go 7-9 in conference play.

The Big Red enjoyed a successful season in conference play in 2010 as Whisner guided the Big Red to a fourth-place finish in the NCAC standings which was highligted by a return to the NCAC Tournament.  Denison won seven of eight contests at one point in the 2010 season and were led by All-NCAC first-team selection, Lauren Strowder.

After spending six years as an assistant coach, Whisner took over the reins from 18-year head coach Sara Lee in 2007. 

She served as the assistant volleyball and assistant softball coach at Denison since the 2001-02 season. From 2001 through 2009 Whisner also served as the assistant softball coach. During that eight-year span the Denison softball team averaged 24 victories a season and captured three NCAC regular season championships, three NCAC Tournament titles and three NCAA Division III Championship Tournament berths.

Whisner and her husband reside in nearby Hanover, Ohio. She earned her master's in business administration from Otterbein College in 2008 and holds a bachelor's degree in business management with a concentration in human resources from Capital University in 1999. A former catcher for the Crusaders, Whisner helped the team to 45 victories over her final two seasons.

In addition to her role as head volleyball coach, Whisner also assists Senior Associate Director of Athletics Lynn Schweizer with the day to day operations of Denison's intramural program.
