The women’s soccer team is ready for the season; according to new head coach Ken Prothero. This season they have Prothero as their head coach and Jess Huda as their assistant coach, and they plan to have a successful women’s soccer team.

Prothero was a goalkeeper for Bucknell University, where he graduated in 1996. He then coached high school girls’ soccer in New Jersey for about a year. During 1998 and 1999 he became assistant coach for the men’s soccer team at Arcadia University for two years. He then became the women’s assistant coach at Cabrini for the 2000-01 season, and is now the head coach.

Prothero loves working with Cabrini’s athletic department for many reasons. He is impressed about how everyone works with the athletic department and things get done. “The admissions and every department on campus have helped a lot,” Prothero said.

The facilities are another reason that makes Prothero smile when he comes to work. Coach Prothero said, “It’s such a joy to work here. Especially being a new coach and I like Cabrini soccer most of all because the players are fantastic people.”

Helping Prothero is assistant coach Jess Huda. Huda graduated from Cabrini in 2001. She was the starting goalkeeper when she played for the Cavaliers and senior year she became captain. She put in her time and energy helping out with the team and this year is assisting Prothero.

Huda enjoys working with the team. “They’re a great bunch of girls to work with. They work hard and put in so much time and energy to be the best they can be,” she said. “Having played here and then being able to coach is awesome!” The main thing Huda wants is to see the program succeed, and she is going to try her hardest to help in that success.

Last weekend, the team competed in a tournament. This tournament involved four teams, and each team played one game per day. The team lost 5-0 on Saturday and again on Sunday, 4-1. Tricia Bradley scored the only goal of the weekend for the team. The women play on Saturday against St. Mary’s College at noon.
