LMSC honors two travel team coaches and one intramural coach at the end of each season as Coach Of The Year winners. Our
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 Fall, 2020 Girls Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award winner is Nico Severini
, head coach for the Under 14A LMSC Furia team.
This is the second time that Nico has been awarded as our Girls Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award winner, having also won the award
back in 2012. This fall, Nico led his Furia team to the Mid-Atlantic Premier I Blue EDP Championship with his team recording a
very impressive record of 7 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie in the extremely tough league. Nico has also been head coach for the
very successful Lower Merion High School boys varsity team for many years.
Our Fall, 2020 Boys Travel Team Coach Of The Year Award winner is John Witkowski
, head coach for the LMSC Bobcats, our
Under 13 B boys travel team and head coach for the LMSC Mayhem, our Under 15 B boys travel team. John took over both of these teams
from other coaches this year and did a tremendous job. John led the Mayhem team to the Penn Championship I league in EDP, guiding
them to a record of 6 wins, 0 loses and 3 ties. John did a great job with both teams in bringing the players together as one team
and having them play great soccer with a lot of enthusiasm and sportsmanship. John coached at the college level for many years
and has become a great addition to the LMSC staff the past two years.
Our Fall, 2020 Intramural Coach Of The Year Award goes to Annie McConnon and Gaby Mazzoni
The fall 2020 season was a very difficult year for everyone, thanks to Covid-19. Many colleges shut down their soccer teams this
fall, leaving lots of college players without a place to play. LMSC was lucky to have several local area college players step into the
coaching ranks this fall. Annie McConnon is a senior at St. Joseph's University and a member of their soccer team. Gaby Mazzoni
is a sophomore soccer player at West Chester University who played in LMSC as a youngster for about 13 years. Both Annie and
Gaby took on intramural teams and both did great jobs, sharing their strong soccer backgrounds with their players. Annie was
head coach for the Bantams Division (6 year old boys) England team while Gaby was head coach for the Electrons Division
(10 and 11 year old girls) Monarchs team. Annie also served as assistant coach for the LMSC Girls Developmental Academy.
LMSC was fortunate to have both of them coaching this year. We hope that both of them will
come back and coach in LMSC in future years.
