Father and Daughter to Coach Penn State DuBois Soccer
DuBois – Scott McAninch, of DuBois, will assume his new role as head coach for the women’s soccer team at Penn State DuBois this upcoming season, and his own daughter, Cassandra, will serve as his assistant coach.
Previously McAninch coached the DuBois Middle School girl’s soccer team for four seasons. He has also coached girls and boys teams in age brackets ranging from elementary school, to college age.
"My season goal for the Penn State women are to pick up where Rachael Schmitz, departing head coach, left the young program," McAninch said. "Soccer is a player’s game, and I will need the team to help me with the rest of the goals for this season."
McAninch holds a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) National Coaching License, which he obtained in 2003.
"I feel fortunate to have Scott on our staff to take over the second year of our soccer program," said Athletic Coordinator Ken Nellis. "Scott is entrenched in the community and has become a student of the game, educating himself in the sport as well as the coaching profession. Scott will provide stability to our young team and will have the opportunity to bring in players from the region to build a team to play his style of soccer."
The Penn State women’s soccer team’s first game of the season is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on September 3, at Pitt-Greensburg.
