Colleen Enrico

Colleen Enrico, one of the best players in the history of Augsburg volleyball, will enter her third season on the Augsburg volleyball coaching staff in 2018.

Enrico began serving as an assistant coach for the Auggies in the 2016 season, in which the Auggies finished 18-10 overall and a perfect 11-0 in Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play, winning the league regular-season title. In 2017, she became the Auggies' top assistant coach, and was part of a team that reached the MIAC playoff semifinals. She had also served a summer internship for Augsburg volleyball in 2014.

A native of Omaha, Neb., Enrico spent the 2015 season as a graduate assistant coach at Wayne State College in her home state. The Wildcats finished 28-8 and reached the NCAA Division II national semifinals in the 2015 campaign.

An outside hitter during her Augsburg career, she earned American Volleyball Coaches Association Division III All-America third-team honors in both 2013 and 2014, also earning AVCA All-Central Region and All-Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors both seasons.

One of the best all-around players in program history, Enrico has a prominent place in Augsburg volleyball's career record book, in the top-10 list in 11 different categories. Her 1,547 kills and 3.33 kills per-set are both second in school history, while her 4,534 attack attempts are tops and .218 attack percentage is 10th best. She holds Augsburg's school record with 329 total blocks, while ranking second with 89 solo blocks and 240 block assists, and ninth in blocks per-set (0.71). She played in a school-record 131 matches and 465 sets in her career.

The second Auggie to ever record both 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in a career, she recorded 51 kill-dig double-doubles in her four seasons. Teams she played on finished 84-35, sharing the MIAC regular-season title and reaching the NCAA Division III national tournament in both her junior and senior seasons, while reaching the MIAC playoffs in three of her four years.

Enrico earned her bachelor's degree in psychology and special education from Augsburg in 2014, and earned her master's degree in organizational management (sport management and recreation concentration) from Wayne State in 2017.
