Sherando High School Names New Varsity Girls’ Soccer Coach
Sherando High School has named Stacey Macoff its new varsity girls’ soccer coach. Macoff, who graduated from Sherando in 2006, succeeds her former coach Rob Kilmer. Kilmer resigned from his coaching position last month after leading Sherando’s girls’ soccer team for 22 years.
After graduating from Sherando, Macoff attended Shenandoah University and played soccer there as well. From 2011-2014, Macoff was the head coach of the Lord Fairfax Community College women’s soccer team. She currently works as a biology teacher at Sherando.
Sherando High School Coordinator of Student Activities Jason Barbe says, “We are really excited to add Coach Macoff to our staff. Her experiences as a former player at Sherando and as the head women’s soccer coach at Lord Fairfax Community College make her the perfect person to continue to build upon the strong program we have always had here."
Macoff says, "I am honored to be selected to serve as the head coach of the Sherando varsity girls' soccer team. Teaching at Sherando has always been a goal of mine and joining the faculty last year was such a proud accomplishment for me. To now have the opportunity to lead a program that helped me to develop as a young woman makes returning to teach at Sherando that much sweeter.
For me, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. When I was a member of Sherando’s girls’ soccer team, Coach Kilmer told me the team would always be my family. It's humbling to succeed him and carry on the legacy that has been created here. I love this community and I love soccer. I am looking forward to leading this program and know each of the young women who I coach will make our community proud, both on and off the field."
