Cassie Seth is tipping off her first season at West Liberty as an assistant coach with the Lady Hilltopper women's basketball program.
Seth comes to WLU after spending last season as an assistant coach at Baldwin-Wallace University. Working for Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame head coach Cheri Harrer, Seth helped lead the Yellow Jackets to a sparkling 21-5 season and a runner-up finish in the highly-competitive Ohio Athletic Conference.
Before breaking into the collegiate ranks at Baldwin-Wallace, Seth spent seven years as a high school head coach in the Cleveland area. During her two seasons at Medina Highland, Seth guided the Hornets to their first-ever OHSAA Division I tournament win before moving on to Parma High School. She was the first coach in more than two decades to post double-digit wins in consecutive seasons at Parma.
During her time as a high school coach, Seth developed 32 all-conference players, five all-district selections and one conference player of the year. She was chosen to coach in the 2010 Medina County All-Star Game and the 2016 Greater Cleveland Basketball Coaches Association (GCBCA) All-Star Game.
The Waterford, Pa. native was a four-year standout and 1,000-point scorer during her playing days at Mercyhurst (Pa.) University. A three-year captain and All-GLIAC honoree, she finished her career ranked among the Lakers’ Top 10 all-time in points and steals. Just as successful in the classroom, Seth was a two-time Dean's List student and earned a spot on the GLIAC’s All-Academic Team.
She holds a bachelor's degree in Business with a concentration in Sport Business Management from Mercyhurst along with a master's degree in Sports Administration from Valparaiso (Ind.) University. Seth is also certified as an International Strength Training Association (ITSA) personal trainer and dotFIT fitness professional.
