Brett Asher '09 is entering his second year leading the Adrian College women's lacrosse program in 2020.
Asher's first season seemed to turn the team around, finishing with an 8-7 record for the most wins and first winning season since the 2014 campaign. Senior Annie Rice earned Second Team All-MIAA honors under Asher, making her a three-time All-Conference winner.
Prior to Adrian, Asher has assisted his wife, Amanda (who played on the first Adrian women's lacrosse team in 2008), with the Concordia University-Ann Arbor women's lacrosse program. Asher focused on the team's offensive unit, but supported in all aspects of the team to include recruiting, formulating game plans and opponent scouting reports, working with the team's goalies, and assisting with scheduling, supervising team study tables, and running the team's social media platforms.
Asher also has club lacrosse experience with the Michigan Wave Lacrosse Club, as Director of Operations and Assistant Coach. He coached players for the high school club team from Northville, South Lyon, Novi, Mercy, St. Catherine, Plymouth, Canton, Salem, Lake Fenton, and Powers Catholic high schools.
No stranger to Adrian College, Asher received a bachelor of arts degree in English and graduated summa cum laude. He was a four-year student-athlete on the Bulldogs men's basketball team, serving as co-captain for his 2008-09 senior season. He was named the squad's co-most valuable player that season and also earned ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The former fulltime attorney attended the Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, conferring a doctor of jurisprudence degree in 2012. He graduated in the top-10 percent of his class and received a full tuition academic scholarship.
