Sherry Dunbar does not claim Indiana University as her Alma Mater, but she is happy to call Bloomington her home even though she grew up down the road in Ellettsville.

Sherry graduated from Ball State University in 1992.  While studying in Muncie, IN, she was part of the Cardinals volleyball program.  She ended up breaking the middle blocking record during her last season.  From there she returned back to Ellettsville High School and became the Assistant coach under Wallenstein.  When Wallenstein was named the Head Coach at USF, he brought Sherry with him.  This is where her College Career all started.

From here, she served as an assistant under a few different coaches.  Sherry then moved on to be the Head Coach of the Lady Volunteers at University of Tennessee. After turning that program around, she moved on the South Carolina to coach at the College of Charleston.

Finally, Sherry ended up here at Indiana University in 2007.  She took this program from shambles to the amazing program it is today.  They receive bids to the NCAA tournament year after year.  Sherry doesn’t only require excellence on the court; she demands academic excellence as well.
