Streicher named assistant volleyball coach

Denison head volleyball coach Lynsey Whisner has named Allison Streicher as the program's assistant coach for the upcoming 2013 season.  Streicher spent the 2012 season as the assistant coach at Earlham College in Richmond, Ind.  Prior to her stint with the Quakers she spent one season as an assistant at Baldwin Wallace University.

While at Earlham, Streicher was heavily involved in all recruiting efforts surrounding the program.  She assisted in spring training sessions and maintained all recruiting software databases.  In addition to her role with the women's varsity squad, Streicher also served as the head coach of the men's volleyball club team at Earlham.

In 2011, as an assistant at Baldwin Wallace, Streicher also served as the head coach of the junior varsity team while also coordinating a "Dig Pink" event for Breast Cancer awareness and research which raised over $1,000.

Streicher is a 2011 graduate of Bluffton University where she was a team captain and a four-year letter winner in volleyball.  In 2009, Bluffton won the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference championship and advanced to the NCAA Division III regional tournament.  Streicher earned a bachelor of arts in social work from Bluffton.

Denison volleyball is coming off a strong 2012 campaign which saw the team post a 21-10 record which marked the most victories since 2002.

Denison's 2013 volleyball season will begin on Friday (Aug. 30) at the Capital University Tournament in Bexley, Ohio.
