MCCC Women's Soccer Coach Jodie Ricciardi Resigns;
Head Coach Search Underway


West Windsor, N.J. -- Jodie Ricciardi, head coach for women's soccer at Mercer County Community College, has resigned after four seasons. Said MCCC Athletics Director John Simone. "We are sorry to see Coach Ricciardi leave us, but she put in four solid years that yielded great results. We truly appreciate her dedication to the players and the sport."

During Ricciardi's tenure, the Vikings earned the Region 19 title and advanced to the Northeast District final in both 2008 and 2009. In the 2010 season, the Vikings fell one game short of the regional title in an overtime loss to Burlington CC.

According to Simone, the 2011 roster will benefit from the talents of eight returning sophomores and eight incoming recruits who are expected to be strong additions to the team. The Vikings' assistant coaches, Mike DeAngelis and Nicole Hover, will continue in their roles on the coaching staff.

An immediate review of potential coaching candidates has commenced, with an expected announcement of the new coach by Aug. 1 and practice to begin Aug. 9. For more information, e-mail simonej@mccc.edu or call 609-570-3740.
