After serving as assistant coach for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Susan Peterson was elevated to Alverno's head volleyball coach just prior to the 2015 season.
She has been a part of three of the most successful seasons in program history from 2013-16. In 2013 and 2014, the Inferno recorded back-to-back 10-win seasons and an overall 20-31 record. The 10 wins are a single-season school record. Alverno volleyball tallied seven wins in 2015 -- tied for the third most wins in a season -- in Peterson's first season at the helm.
Prior to coaching at Alverno, Peterson was an assistant volleyball coach at Muskego High School for eight seasons. While she was an assistant coach at Muskego, the program won two Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 1 championships and was runner-up twice.
She also currently serves as the tournament director for the Wisconsin Juniors Volleyball Club.
