St. John Fisher - Women's Soccer

Fisher Soccer Camps

Head Coach Molly Romano

 

Molly Romano was named the sixth head coach of the women's soccer program in August of 2019.

"I am honored for the opportunity to become the next head coach of the women's soccer program at St. John Fisher College,” Romano commented. “I would like to thank Jill McCabe, the search committee, and the Fisher community for this incredible opportunity.”

Romano comes to Fisher after spending the past two years as an assistant coach at Rochester Institute of Technology under Liz Masterson where she helped lead the Tigers to a 23-10-7 record along with back-to-back appearances in the Liberty League Championship.

Most recently, Romano and the Tigers enjoyed one of the program’s best seasons in 2018 as RIT earned its first berth in the NCAA Division III Championship after receiving an at-large berth.  The Tigers parlayed that appearance into a first round win over Susquehanna.

On the sidelines, Romano has tallied over a decade of experience in recreational clubs and school teams alike. Romano coaches for the Pittsford Mustangs Girls Under-17 club and for the U14 Empire United Team. At the high school level, she was an assistant coach for Pittsford Sutherland from 2013-16 and the head coach of Beaver Country Day School from 2010-13.

Romano was also an assistant women’s soccer coach at Bentley University in 2009 and at Lasell College in 2008.

Jill McCabe, former women’s soccer coach and Fisher’s Senior Women’s Administrator and Associate Athletics Director, passes the program to Romano after 19 years at the helm. McCabe, who is the program’s all-time leader in coaching victories, led the Cardinals to a 116 wins over nearly two decades to go along with six appearances in the Empire 8 Championship, and is confident in the department’s hiring of Romano.

Romano was an offensive threat during her playing career at John Carroll University. She earned All-Ohio Athletic Conference, All-Academic honors and secured the team’s offensive MVP in 2003 and 2004. Romano graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in middle childhood education from John Carroll in 2005.

“I look forward to working with the student-athletes to continue building a championship program," stated Romano.
