Veteran coach returns to lead Kodiaks soccer programs
Former Kodiaks women’s soccer coach Sean Carey has returned to Lethbridge College to lead both programs. Carey had been head coach of the women’s team for two seasons in 2009-10 and 2010-11 and has a long history of coaching soccer at all levels in southern Alberta. “It’s very exciting, and there’s a lot of good memories from my two years here,” says Carey. “There’s a solid foundation here with the soccer program. It’s come a long way in the last few years and it makes it really appealing. It’s going to be fun and I’m relishing it.”
