Amanda Lehnerz


I started playing volleyball in 4th grade and have been involved in the sport ever since.

I attended West Bend East High School, graduated in 2013, and played all 4 years of high school.

I also won Sports Woman of the Year my senior year.

I started my college career playing for UW-Washington county where our team had a perfect season and went 52-0.

I was 1st team all conference, nominated to the all state tournament team, and also won player of the year for conference. I transferred to Concordia University Wisconsin the next year and played on the varsity team for 2 years.

My roles for the CUW team ranged from serving specialist to strong side hitter. Over the years, I have played every position, which allows me to be a well rounded coach.

I started my coaching career my senior year of high school (winter 2012) coaching for West Bend Power. I coached there for 2 seasons, then when I transferred to CUW I started coaching for Wisconsin Premier. I’ve been with Premier since 2013.
