NGU Welcomes A New Soccer Coach
Thursday, August 18, 2011
Tigerville, SC- North Greenville University is proud to announce the arrival of a new soccer coach into the Crusader family. Over the course of the summer the women’s soccer Head Coach, Jesse McCormick, had the opportunity to seek out more help for the women’s soccer team. Rachel Baer is the new women’s soccer Assistant Coach.

    Baer arrived on the NGU campus last week to finalize her position within the soccer coaching staff by meeting with President Epting. The women’s soccer team had the first practice of the season on Friday and had the opportunity to meet Baer for the first time. Baer’s official first day was Monday, August 15th, in which she assisted with practice and team meetings.

    Baer is expected to bring new perspectives to the offensive end of the field. About what she could bring to the team, Baer said, “Being an offensive player myself, and having the privilege of playing at high levels of competition, I hope to be able to bring an offensive dynamic to the team that will help us be more dangerous in the attacking third.” McCormick had nothing but praise for Baer, “Rachel will bring energy, knowledge, and experience both in playing and coaching that has already been a tremendous help to our team. Her experience as a forward playing both division I and just finishing her first professional season with the Charlotte Eagles will be a great help as she works with our offense as well as developing players technical ability.”

     The Crusader women’s soccer team opens the season at home against Southern Wesleyan University. Kickoff will be at 7 P.M at Pepsi Soccer Stadium. Come out to support the Crusaders and the new Assistant Coach, Rachel Baer!
