Amy (Phelps) Woerth
Woerth enters her second season at the helm of the Bearcat volleyball program after finishing sixth in the MIAA in 2012 posting a 15-17 record in her first season.
After serving one season as an assistant coach, Woerth inherited a young team that included three seniors, three juniors, seven sophomores and six freshman. Northwest earned a berth in the MIAA Postseason Tournament as a six seed before falling to Central Missouri in the first round.
Additionally, two Bearcats earned All-MIAA honors in her first season, as senior Tori Beckman earned first-team honors and sophomore Brooke Bartosh was named to the third-team. Beckman also capped one of the best defensive seasons ever at Northwest setting the single season record for digs with 716.
Woerth returned to Northwest in 2011 as an assistant coach for the Bearcats after a six-year absence from Maryville. She spent the 2003 and 2004 season as a graduate assistant under head coach Lori Slight.
In her time at Northwest, Woerth has been the top recruiter and director for all Bearcat volleyball camps as well as working primarily with the setters and middle hitters. The Holden, Mo. native received her masters from Northwest in 2005 with a degree in physical education and an emphasis in sports administration.
Prior to returning to Northwest, Woerth spent six seasons at Alaska-Fairbanks as an assistant coach during the 2005 and 2006 season before being elevated to associate head coach from 2007-2010. She helped coach 10 All-Conference honorees in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference and 31 GNAC Academic All-Conference student-athletes. Under Woerth the Nanooks also earned one GNAC Newcomer of the Year and one GNAC Freshman of the Year.
Her coaching career began in 2001 at her alma mater, Graceland University, where she assisted with both the men’s and women’s teams. In 2002 the Lady Jackets were Region V finalists and qualified for the NAIA National Championships.
During her time as a player, Woerth earned first-team all-conference and all-region honors and was named an honorable mention NAIA All-American as well as an NAIA All-American Scholar-Athlete. Her team won both the regular season and postseason titles in the Heart of America Conference and she served as a co-captain.
Woerth graduated from Graceland in 2003 with a double major in health and wellness and program management. Amy resides in Maryville with her husband, Brandon Woerth.
