Cassie Seth returns for her second season as the lead assistant with the Lady Hilltopper women's basketball program.
Seth joined Coach Kyle Cooper’s West Liberty staff a year ago after a successful season as an assistant coach at NCAA Division III 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.
