ST. FRANCIS HIGH SCHOOL HIRES NEW GIRLS’ VOLLEYBALL COACH
Wheaton, IL – January 19, 2016
The St. Francis High School Athletic Department is pleased to announce Lisa Ston as the new head coach of the Varsity Girls’ Volleyball Team.
Ston has 16 years of experience as the assistant coach for St. Francis High School under Peg Kopec, who announced her retirement upon winning the IHSA Class 4A title. Ston has designed offensive systems, contributed to practice plans, led daily practice drills, and coached summer camps. She also has served as a varsity assistant for the boys’ and head coach to the boys’ sophomore volleyball teams, as well as head coach to the girls’ freshman volleyball team.
Ston played high school volleyball at Incarnate Word Academy and club volleyball at the St. Charles Volleyball Club, both in St. Louis. At the collegiate level, Ston started all four years at Dominican University in River Forest, Ill. where she was Freshman Conference Player of the Year, and both team captain and MVP her junior and senior years. She was named to the All-Tournament Team for four years and All-American her senior year.
Before coming to St. Francis High School, Ston served as an assistant volleyball coach for one year at Incarnate Word Academy in St. Louis and as head coach for a U16 club team for Sports Performance in West Chicago.
“I am thrilled to get Lisa on board as our next head girls’ volleyball coach,” said Dan Hardwick, Athletic Director, St. Francis High School. “She has the skills and personality to continue with the success and tradition that Peg built with the program, and will really do a great job making a connection with our student-athletes. I can’t wait for the season to begin.”
