Nyack, NY - Nyack College is pleased to announce the appointment of Emma Webb as the new head coach of the women's soccer program.
Upon hiring Webb stated, "It is a huge honor and privilege to become the head women's soccer coach here at Nyack College. I would like to thank athletic director Keith Davie, the search committee and administration for the opportunity to lead the women's soccer program. I am excited to work at a Christian college positioned in such a strategic geographic location. I believe with the opportunities and strengths that the school's location provides, coupled with my commitment to grow women of character, we can continue to expand the success the program has begun to see in recent years."
Webb is a graduate of Houghton College where she played for four years under head coach David Lewis. During that time the team made four consecutive runs to the NCCAA national tournament, and in 2016 took home the national title. After her active playing career Webb made the transition into coaching as an assistant coach for the women's program at Eastern Nazarene College (ENC). In her last year at ENC, Webb transitioned as an assistant coach from the women's to the men's program. In that year the men's team saw their most successful season since 1994.
"We are excited to have Emma as part of the Nyack family," said athletic director Keith Davie. "Emma comes from a strong coaching lineage and when you couple that with her character, the Nyack women's soccer program is in good hands. I am excited to see where she takes the program."
Webb holds a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Communications from Houghton College.
