The Shoreline Community College Athletic Department named Aaron Howe as its new Head Women’s Soccer Coach on Tuesday, replacing former coach, Mark Szabo, who resigned in January to pursue other soccer opportunities.
Howe has been a NWAACC head coach before, coaching at both Pierce College (Men’s Head Coach) and Wenatchee Valley Community College (Head Women’s Coach), plus being a graduate assistant at Gonzaga University in Spokane. Coach Howe has a large resume of club soccer experience as well.
Shoreline CC Athletic Director, Doug Palmer, said of Howe: “Aaron brings us the right combination of head college experience in the NWAACC plus experience in club soccer, which is very helpful in recruiting student-athletes to Shoreline. We think Coach Howe will continue the successful program Mark Szabo built here and hopefully return us to the NWAACC Final Four again in women’s soccer in the near future.”
The Shoreline CC women’s soccer program has been very successful in the past, winning four straight NWAACC Northern Region Championships from 2005 to 2008. The team finished third in the NWAACC in 2007 and 2008. The Lady Dolphins finished 2nd in the region in 2009 and 3rd last year. SCC made the NWAACC Women’s Soccer Play-offs for 7 straight years under Szabo.
Coach Howe will begin recruiting immediately for next season and will start spring soccer practice with the current team on April 1.
