The third season for Noble will bring a bevy of responsibility, as she will continue to hold the title of recruiting coordinator, while also working with many other aspects of the program. The Peru, Ind. Native joined the Green Wave staff after coaching stints at nearby University of New Orleans and Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tenn.
Her primary responsibilities with the Green Wave include the coordination of recruiting, community service projects and alumni relations. Noble also serves as the staffs' liaison with the office of athletic academics, and oversee the team's academic progress in addition to other administrative duties. In the gym, she works with TU setters and helps with the overall implementation of the teams practice plan.
On the court, Noble has helped five players earn All-Conference USA accolades over the last two seasons, while Visnja Djurdjevic and Rachel Lindelow each earned AVCA All-American and All-Region honors in 2009. Djurdjevic won the first specialty award during Noble's stay with the program, as the senior was named Co-Player of the Year in 2009, while Cori Martone grabbed the C-USA Freshman of the Year honors during the 2010 campaign.
Last season, Izabela Grot was the lone Green Wave player to be selected to the All-Conference USA team, bringing home second team accolades. In 2010, Djurdjevic earned First Team All-C-USA honors, while Lindelow and Ksenija Vlaskovic each brought home second team honors. Freshmen Martone (2010) and Marija Milosavljevic (2009) have each earned Conference USA All-Freshman team accolades.
Along with the Green Wave's success on the court, the team achieved something that just one other squad in school history has been able to do, earn the American Volleyball Coaches Association's Team Academic Award. The 2009 and 1994 squads are the only two that have earned the distinction from the AVCA, which honors teams with a cumulative GPA of 3.30 for the academic year.
As an assistant coach at UNO in 2007, Noble helped the Privateers to a 16-16 overall record while qualifying for the Sun Belt Conference Tournament. During her time on the Lakefront, Noble was responsible for assisting with outside hitters, program administration and the daily operations of the volleyball program. She also organized travel and tape exchange, was involved in recruiting and the program's camps and clinics.
She came to New Orleans after a year as an assistant at Lincoln Memorial University where Noble helped the Railsplitters post a 19-12 overall record.
Prior to joining the collegiate ranks, Noble coached club volleyball through the Hoosierland Volleyball Club in Bloomington, Ind. She has run several summer camps and leagues for high schools, as well as worked numerous college camps including the University of Tennessee, Indiana University and East Tennessee State University. Noble also served as a coach for the Peru (Ind.) Community Schools Summer League from 1999-2002.
Noble completed her bachelor's degree in music and elementary education from Western Michigan in Dec. 2003 and earned a master's degree in education and counseling from Lincoln Memorial in May 2008.
