Emily Fisher is the first-ever women's lacrosse coach at Mount Union and the team enters its seventh season in 2018-19.

Fisher has had a dynamic start to her college coaching career as she led the Purple Raiders to a 95-14 record over the last six seasons with five Ohio Athletic Conference regular season and tournament titles along with five trips to the NCAA Tournament.

In 2018, the Raiders won their first 17 games before losing at No. 5 Mary Washington (Va.) in the second round.

In 2017, Mount Union won an NCAA Tournament game for a fourth straight year before falling to No. 1 The College of New Jersey in the regional semifinals (round of 16).

In 2016, the Raiders won an NCAA tournament game for a third straight year knocking off No. 17 ranked Washington & Lee (Va.) in the first round.

In 2015, Mount Union advanced to the regional semifinals (round of 16) of the NCAA Tournament and finished the season ranked No. 18 in the nation.

In 2014, the Raiders claimed the first-ever OAC regular season and tournament title.

Before coming to Alliance, Fisher had been coaching lacrosse at Hudson High School in Hudson, Ohio. In 2009 and 2010, she served as an assistant coach before taking over as the head coach. In 2011, Hudson was ranked No. 1 in Ohio during a season in which they went 14-3-1 and lost in the Ohio High School Girls Lacrosse Association state semifinals.

Fisher was a three-year lacrosse letterwinner at The College of Wooster and, as a junior in 2007, earned North Coast Athletic Conference All-Tournament team honors as she helped lead the Fighting Scots to the NCAC title and an NCAA Division III Tournament appearance.

Off the field, she was as a reading intervention specialist at Stanton Middle School in Kent and, prior to that, held fifth and sixth grade teaching positions at Hawken Middle School in Lyndhurst and Urban Community School in Cleveland.

A native of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, she attended Walsh Jesuit High School, graduated with a bachelor's degree in communications from Wooster then went on to earn a master's degree in education from John Carroll University.

Her post-graduate studies are not her only connection to the Ohio Athletic Conference as her father, Tim Baab, was the head men's basketball coach at John Carroll for 11 seasons.

Fisher, who also serves as an assistant to the athletic director at Mount Union, and her husband Kenny and son Theo reside in Mantua, Ohio.
