Grove City hires Street as head volleyball coach

GROVE CITY, Pa. -- Grove City College has hired Erin Street as head volleyball coach, assistant track and field coach and assistant professor of physical education and exercise science. She will begin her duties this summer.

Street comes to Grove City after spending the last eight seasons at nearby Slippery Rock University. Street worked as a graduate assistant at The Rock from 2006 until the spring of 2009. She then became an assistant volleyball coach prior to the 2009 season.

As an assistant coach at Slippery Rock, Street worked in all facets of the volleyball program, including scouting, practice planning and recruiting. She specifically handled the design and implementation of The Rock’s offensive attack during her tenure.

Street played volleyball for four seasons at Wheeling Jesuit University from 2002 to 2005 and co-captained the team in her senior season. A standout setter for the Cardinals, she recorded 1,285 career assists, which ranked fourth in program history.

Street also ranked third all-time at Wheeling Jesuit in assists per game (8.74) and second in aces per game (.476).

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Street earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology at Wheeling Jesuit in 2006. She completed her master of arts in community counseling at Slippery Rock in 2009.

She will succeed head coach Susan Roberts, who is retiring at the end of the academic year. Roberts compiled a 583-424 record in 29 seasons (1985-2013) at Grove City.

Street will be the fourth head volleyball coach in Grove City history, following Terry Ellis (1973-82), Judy Zarenko (1983-84) and Roberts.
