YOUNGWOOD, Pa. – Catherine (Katie) Yohe has been tapped as the new Head Women's Soccer Coach at Westmoreland County Community College.
"I am looking forward to building the Women's program at Westmoreland," said Yohe. "I am extremely excited to develop a competitive program that is an extension of the classroom for our athletes, allowing them to not only develop their soccer skills but also grow into successful adults in their chosen pursuits."
Yohe spent last fall as the assistant coach at Ringgold High School and helped the Rams post a 5-6-1 section record. Following the season, two members of the team signed to play in college next fall at the NCAA Division II level.
Prior to her season at Ringgold, Yohe had worked with an array of club and high school/middle school programs. That included one season as the head coach at Yough Middle School, two seasons as the head coach at Beth-Center High School and years as an assistant and head coach with Victory Soccer Club, with various Mon Valley Clubs and recently as a coach with Soccer Shots in Pittsburgh.
"We're excited to bring Katie on board to lead our women's soccer program," said Westmoreland Director of Athletics Brian Rose. "She's extremely knowledgeable and showed a great ability to work with players at various skill levels through her coaching career. With her network of contacts through the area, I believe she'll recruit quality student-athletes to join the Wolfpack program who can be successful on the field, reach their goals academically and be a strong part of the Westmoreland campus and community."
A graduate of Ringgold High School, Yohe earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in History from California (Pa.) University in 2009. She is currently working towards a Master's degree in Education from California.
