Aug. 18, 2006
PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University Head Women's Tennis Coach Lisa Hart announced the hiring of Courtney Steinbock as the Cougars' assistant tennis coach. Steinbock replaces Elissa Kinard, who became the women's head coach at Albany this past summer.
Steinbock has spent the previous three seasons as the volunteer women's tennis assistant at her alma mater, the University of Kansas. While with the Jayhawks, Steinbock was involved in all aspects of the program, from on-court coaching, organizing team travel and scheduling, and helping coordinate team practices.
'I am overjoyed to welcome Courtney to the Cougar Family,' said Hart. 'I have always admired her work ethic and enthusiasm as a player and a person and I look forward to her contributions to our program.'
Steinbock completed an impressive playing career at Kansas in 2004, holding down the top spot in both singles and doubles as a senior. She was a two-time team MVP and Jayhawk Scholar, while also earning Big XII First-Team All-Conference honors in 2003.
Steinbock earned a bachelor's degree in general studies from Kansas in 2004.
