GREENSBORO, N.C. – Elizabeth Ahern has been added to the Greensboro College volleyball coaching staff, Head Coach Kathy Bullock announced Tuesday.
“I am extremely excited about Elizabeth being a part of the Pride volleyball family, and I am looking forward to greatness,” Bullock said.
Ahern, a native of Corte Madera, Calif., graduated in 2016 from Amherst College, where she was a four-year member of the volleyball team.
During her time at Amherst, Ahern was a two-time NESCAC Player of the Week selection, while also ranking third in the conference in kills per set as a freshman. Ahern also became the first rookie in Amherst history to earn All-Conference recognition.
Ahern suffered an injury that sidelined her for her sophomore season but she rebounded over the next two seasons to tally 361 kills and 70 total blocks.
Also during her time at Amherst, Ahern was a four-time selection to the NESCAC All-Academic Team, while also serving as a founding member of the Mental Health and Wellness team.
Following her graduation with a B.A. in psychology and sociology, Ahern returned home to California, where she became a member of the Absolute Volleyball Club coaching staff. She helped lead the club’s 17-Black team to second place in Northern California while also achieving a 33rd-place national ranking.
“I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Coach Bullock and the Greensboro College Athletics Department for offering me this opportunity,” Ahern said. “It has been a dream of mine to return to college volleyball, and I am blessed to have the chance at such an amazing institution.
“I am eager to learn from Coach K’s vast experience and work alongside a determined group of young student-athletes. I firmly believe my enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for the game will translate into coaching success at the collegiate level.”
