LMSC honors two travel team coaches and one intramural coach at the end of each spring season as Coach Of The Year winners. LMSC also honors two travel
team coaches at the end of the fall season as Coach Of The Year winners. Award winners are recognized for outstanding contributions to the club as well as
overall success in adhering to the club's philosophy of "providing each and every child with a fun filled experience in a soccer environment."
Our Spring, 2019 Girls Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award winner is Pete Gangl
, head coach for the Under 19
LMSC Storm and the Under 13 Impact. Pete first coached the Storm back in 2008 in the Developmental Academy. He continued
with them all the way through the Under 19 season when Storm made their sixth straight appearance in the state cup finals.
The Storm were crowned state champions for their fourth year in a row, qualifying them for the Region One championships
where the Storm reached the championship game. Similar to the Storm, the Impact players are developing into an excellent
team, have learned the meaning of training hard and enjoying being part of a fun team. This fall, over 20 of the LMSC
Storm players will be playing in college, thanks to Pete's great efforts. Since the Storm won't be around any longer, Pete
has taken on the role of head coach of the LMSC Lynx, our U-11A girls team. We are confident that the Impact and the
Lynx players will develop into great soccer players and even greater young ladies, similar to the Storm.
Congratulations to Pete on being named the winner of the Spring, 2019 LMSC Girls Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award.
Our Spring, 2019 Boys Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award winner is Kevin Rhoades
, head coach for the Under 17 A

The Fever had a very successful spring season, playing in US Youth Soccer's National League EDP South Atlantic Division

Development Academy and will be coaching our 2012 and 2013 birth boys D.A. this coming season.
