Michael Sisti is the head coach for the Mercyhurst Lakers women's ice hockey program.
Coaching career[edit | edit source]
In his first 13 seasons with the Lakers, he has accumulated a won loss record of 334-92-29. His 334 wins rank third all-time, trailing only Harvard's Katey Stone and former coach Laura Halldorson. His winning percentage of .766 winning percentage is second only to Mark Johnson, the head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers.
During the 2011-12 Mercyhurst season, the Lakers only carried 17 skaters, but Sisti guided the club to its 12th consecutive regular season title. In addition, the squad qualified for the NCAA tournament for the eighth consecutive season, an NCAA Division I women's hockey record. The Lakers finished 22-8-3 overall, and were defeated by top-seed Wisconsin, 3-1, in the NCAA quarterfinals.
