Seward’s assistant coach the past two years has taken a division 1 job.
Lizzie Nessling joins Matt Daniel’s staff as an assistant coach after two seasons as an assistant at Seward County.
This past season, Nessling helped coach Seward to a 25-7 mark and the Region VI tournament semifinals. She aided in coaching two WBCA All-Americans, including A-State newcomer Karolina Szydlowska, while also being responsible for recruiting both 2019-20 KJCCC Co-Freshmen of the Year (Tianna Johnson and Leilani Augmon). In the summer prior to the 2019-20 campaign, Nessling was selected to coach in the NJCAA Top 40 Showcase.
In 2018-19, she helped guide the Lady Saints to a Jayhawk West Conference Championship, Region VI Runner-up, NJCAA Sweet 16 appearance and a regular-season No. 2 finish in the national poll with a 30-4 overall record. She took part in coaching multiple all-region and all-conference players, including Szydlowska.
Prior to Seward, Nessling spent two years as an assistant at University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Kansas, where the Lady Spires won 37 games in her two years, reaching the semifinals of the KCAC Tournament in both seasons.
As a player, she was a 2-time captain for Lincoln University’s women’s basketball team where she received the Glue Guy Award for two straight years and was recognized as the True Blue 2016 Athlete of the Year her senior year. She also took the program from a 5-win season to tying the program history record for most MIAA conference wins and the best conference finish.
Nessling earned her master’s degree in Business Administration from University of Saint Mary in 2018 and her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Lincoln University in 2016.
