Former Seawolf standout Stacie Meisner rejoins the Alaska Anchorage volleyball staff in 2019 for her third season overall and her first as the program's top assistant coach.
The Gering, Nebraska, native has twice served as a graduate assistant under head coach Chris Green, helping the 2011 club to an 18-9 record and an NCAA berth, and contributing to last year's squad that finished 21-7 overall.
Meisner was the executive director of the Anchorage Sports Association from 2015-18, helping guide the state’s largest adult and youth recreational sports organization. She has also been an active volunteer in the community, serving as director of the IMPACT Volleyball Club, an assistant coach at West Anchorage High School, and with the Seawolf Athlete Alumni Chapter.
UAA’s starting libero from 2008-09, Meisner was part of Chris Green’s first two Seawolf teams, helping spark the program’s turnaround. In 2009, she led UAA with 4.54 digs and 0.36 aces per set as the Seawolves won their first GNAC title, reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament, and equaled the best record in school history at 23-8. An honorable mention All-GNAC and academic all-conference honoree, she finished No. 2 in digs per set (4.53) and No. 3 in aces per set (.357) on UAA’s career lists.
Meisner graduated with magna cum laude honors in English in 2011, before earning her master of arts in English from UAA in 2015. She is currently pursuing a second master’s degree in business administration.
