To reach 500 wins as a coach takes time, effort, and commitment. Lisa Schumacher has reached the 500-game win mark and is the perfect reflection of her 29-year long high school volleyball head coach career. The 500th win took place in the first round of the 3A state tournament. Schumacher became the sixth in Colorado history to reach the 500-mark. In her career, Schumacher has coached 20 teams to multiple regional appearances and 16 state appearances. In 2005 and 2019, the Sterling Tigers won the state title under Schumacher. Schumacher also saw Final Four appearances in 2004 and 2006, a runner-up position in 2003 and 2020, and a third placing in 1994.
