Pat  Fisher

Arguably the most recognizable face in Lafayette women's basketball history, Fisher spent 21 seasons at the helm of the Leopards, spanning from 1980-2001. As just the third coach in the program's history, Fisher remains Lafayette's winningest coach with a 295-284 (.509) record. She amassed four 20-win campaigns, 11 winning seasons and two league championships. Fisher earned East Coach Conference (ECC) Coach of the Year honors in both 1985 and 1988. Lafayette brought the ECC championship to College Hill in 1985 and 1987. The Patriot League named Fisher its Coach of the Year in 1992 after the Leopards finished 19-10.

Fisher coached all of the top ten scorers and rebounders in the Lafayette women's record book and was inducted into the Lehigh Valley Basketball Hall of Fame in 1993. Along with coaching, Fisher served as the College's Coordinator of Women's Athletics beginning in 1982 before being promoted to Assistant Athletic Director in 1990. She also coached the Lafayette softball team from 1978-85 and compiled a 104-66-1 (.611) record.

Fisher is now retired from coaching and currently serves on the Easton Area School Distinct Board of Education. She recently became a consultant for the Collegiate Athlete Educational Program, and organization that enables parents and potential student-athletes the opportunity to learn, become informed and be provided the necessary information so that their son or daughter can attend college regardless of their social, economic, or religious situation. Fisher conducts the program's three-part seminar around the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey.
