Sherisa Livingston


Head Coach

Sherisa Livingston is entering her first season as the first-ever head volleyball coach for the University of Antelope Valley. Livingston comes to the Pioneers after spending the last year working as an assistant coach at Seattle University.

A native of Simi Valley, Calif., Livingston brings a wealth of first-hand knowledge of the college volleyball game as a former player and coach. Seattle University finished its season with an 8-6 record in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) while finishing 14-17 overall. As the No. 5 seed in the WAC Tournament, the Redhawks knocked off No. 4 Utah Valley and No. 1 UM-Kansas City before falling to No. 3 CSU-Bakersfield in the WAC Championship game. The Redhawks had one player who earned All-WAC First Team honors and one All-WAC Freshman Team honors.

Before joining the Redhawks, Livingston was a volunteer assistant for the University of Nebraska, which is one of the premier programs in the nation. The Huskers posted a 26-7 overall record, including a 16-4 conference record to finish in second place in the Big Ten Conference. The Huskers went to the NCAA Tournament regional final.

Nick Ferry is entering his inaugural season as the first womens volleyball assistant coach in University of Antelope Valley program history.

While a student-athlete at Springfield, Ferry was three-time NCAA Division III national champion as a member of the Pride, and his efforts on the court earned him All-America honors twice (2011, 2014). In 2013, Ferry was named to the United States National Volleyball team for the 2013 World University Games.
