Lundy named Assistant Volleyball Coach
FORT MYERS, Fla. – Carrie Lundy, a former assistant coach with the Truman State University volleyball team, has been named the assistant volleyball coach at Florida Gulf Coast University, head coach Jaye Flood announced. Lundy will begin working with the Eagles in July and will assist with all aspects of the program.
“Carrie is a great addition to our program,” said Flood. “She is very experienced in training and recruiting and she also brings an overwhelming desire to succeed which will be advantageous to helping our team win.”
Lundy comes to FGCU after two extremely successful years at Truman State, which won two Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association championships and made two NCAA Division II tournament appearances while compiling a 68-6 mark in that span. The 2004 team advanced to the national championship final.
Prior to joining the staff at Truman, where she also taught in the school’s Department of Health and Exercise Science, Lundy spent four seasons as the assistant volleyball coach and three seasons as the head women’s golf coach at Ashland University. She also served as an instructor in the Department of Sports Sciences. As the golf coach, Lundy was in charge of developing a program that started in 2000. She has also worked as a graduate assistant volleyball coach at Northwest Missouri from 1997-99.
Lundy played collegiate volleyball at Lincoln Memorial University, an NCAA Division II school, from 1993-96. She shattered nearly every school blocking record while playing for the Lady Railsplitters, ending her career with a school-record 741 total blocks, 334 more than the second-place athlete. Lundy is also fourth all-time in career kills (1,094). She was named the team's defensive player of the year three times and was a member of the Gulf South all-conference team in 1995.
Lundy graduated with honors from Lincoln Memorial in 1996 with a bachelors of science in physical education. She received her masters of science in education, health and physical education from Northwest Missouri in 1999.
