LISLE, Ill. -- Benedictine University Women's Soccer Coach Robyn Serge has resigned from her post at the university effective immediately after six years in charge of the program. Serge is resigning to return home.
"I would like to thank Benedictine University for the privilege of guiding its women's soccer program for the past six years," Serge said. "I feel that we have improved the program and have established a set of good core values and high expectations for the team. Every year we have improved and this should continue. I value the relationships that I have obtained here and I will always have a place for the Eagles in my heart."
The Benedictine University women's soccer program took a major step forward under Serge, with improved won-lost records and numerous all-conference players. Overall during six years at Benedictine, Serge finished 41-52-5. The 2007 team posted a mark of 10-5-1 including an 8-3-1 campaign in the Northern Athletics Conference. Benedictine finished 6-7-1 in the 2011 season.
Serge also served as the Director of Operations and assistant coach to the Chicago Red Eleven, the W-League affiliate to the Chicago Red Stars and came to Benedictine from her alma mater, Rockford College.
"Under Coach Serge's leadership our Women's program made significant progress," Benedictine Director of Athletics Mark McHorney said. "We would like to thank Robyn for her service to Benedictine University. Our student athletes, staff and alumni have benefited from her dedication and leadership in our Women's Soccer program."
A national search will begin immediately to find a new leader for the women's soccer program.
