Lisa Norris joined the Wolfpack coaching staff as the pitching coach on Aug. 22, 2011.
Norris, a Snellville Ga., native, spent the last two summers competing with the Akron Racers of the National Pro Fastpitch league in Akron, Ohio. In 2010, she was named Diamond Sports NPF Pitcher of the Year after leading the NPF in wins (14), complete games (16), shutouts (four) and innings pitched (137.2). That season, Norris ranked second in the league in both strikeouts (126), and ERA (1.73) during the regular season.
As a NPF rookie in 2009, she led the league with 12 wins and also tossed a perfect game in her first outing for the Racers.
A 2009 graduate of North Carolina, Norris was a true workhorse for the Tar Heel pitching staff throughout her four years in Chapel Hill. Her 78 career wins ranks third all-time at North Carolina, while her 808 strikeouts is second-best in Tar Heel history. As a senior, Norris was named first team All-Southeast Region and All-ACC.
