Anna Gott, a 2013 NAU graduate and the Lumberjack volleyball program’s all-time digs leader, enters her fifth season as an assistant coach for the team. Along with her coaching duties, Gott also serves as the team's summer camp coordinator.
During her first four seasons on the staff, the Lumberjacks have compiled a 92-32 overall record. The 92 wins in Gott’s time on the staff are second-most in the conference over the last four years. NAU also has posted the third-most Big Sky victories in that span with a remarkable record of 51-17 under the current coaching regime.
Over the last four years, NAU has not finished lower than fourth in the Big Sky Conference and has reached the tournament championship match in each of the past two seasons. Gott helped lead the Lumberjacks to both the 2015 Big Sky regular season and conference championships and just the program's second-ever trip to the NCAA Tournament.
Gott was a leader on the court for the Lumberjacks throughout her career, serving as a team captain for three seasons. She also has experience coaching the 17 and under Northern Arizona Juniors club volleyball team in Flagstaff for four years.
Gott started every match and played in every set as the libero for her entire four-year career. She shattered NAU's all-time digs record with 1,891 career digs, the third highest career dig total in Big Sky history. She was a two-time All-Big Sky honorable mention selection and set NAU's single season digs record with 586 digs last season. Gott recorded four of the six highest single season dig averages in program history and is second in program history with a 4.68 career digs per set average. She also finished her career fourth in program history in service aces (119) and tied for fifth in sets played (404).
In addition to her excellence on the court, Gott was stellar in the classroom as she was a four-time Big Sky All-Academic selection and Golden Eagle Scholar-Athlete Award recipient. During her senior season, she was also a nominee for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award. She graduated with a degree in management.
A native of Phoenix, Gott starred at Desert Vista High School before starting her Northern Arizona career in 2009.
