Michelle Myers ’88 was named head coach of the LMU women’s soccer program.
Myers has been a mainstay of the LMU coaching staff for well over a decade, joining the program as an assistant coach in 1996. She helped the program to its first NCAA College Cup appearance in 2002 and consistently signing some of the best recruiting classes in the nation.
Myers has been an active member of the Cal South Olympic Development Program (ODP) since 1996. Myers has led her teams to 10 ODP regional championships and three national titles.
Prior to LMU, Myers served one year as head coach of the women’s program at Rancho Santiago Community College in Santa Ana and spent three seasons guiding one of the top prep girl’s soccer programs in Southern California at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana. Her first taste of coaching came in the dual role of junior varsity head coach and varsity assistant coach at Los Altos High School in the S.F. Bay Area.
She played four seasons at Santa Clara, and as a senior, she helped the Broncos to a 10-4-3 overall record and a No. 17 national ranking, the first national ranking in program history. In her four seasons (1984-87) at SCU, the team totaled an overall record of 46-17-10.
