YUMA, Ariz. – After two of the most successful seasons in the history of Women’s Soccer at Arizona Western College, Head Coach Nicole Acosta announced her resignation to pursue other endeavors.
Acosta’s first season proved to be a smashing success in 2018 as the Lady Matadors set program marks with 21 wins, a conference championship, and the program’s first appearance at the NJCAA National Championship Tournament.
Those achievements earned Acosta ACCAC and Region I Coach of the Year honors. She also oversaw the conference player of the year, Christiana Boateng, in her record setting season as well as earning All-American honors.
Year two proved to be another successful campaign under Acosta as the Matadors completed the most successful two year stretch in program history by securing 12 wins and the fourth seed in the conference playoffs. The Matadors made their second consecutive appearance in the Region Championship, falling in a heartbreaker on the road in the final seconds of the second overtime period.
Arizona Western will immediately begin a nationwide search for the fifth Head Coach in the history of the program.
Arizona Western College is one of the top community colleges in Arizona. The college boasts partnerships with all three state universities that include face-to-face classes in Yuma.
