Josh Cardin Named Head Women’s Soccer Coach

cardinShoreline Community College is pleased to announce Josh Cardin as Head Women’s Soccer Coach. Cardin has extensive experience coaching soccer at the club and high school levels. He is currently the Boys Soccer Associate Head Coach for his alma mater Mountlake Terrace. Cardin has been an Assistant and Goalkeeper Coach for FC Edmonds since 2014. He currently works with the FC Edmonds G05 team that was the first Girls U9 team to win a U10 State Championship for FC Edmonds. Cardin also spent time working with FC Edmonds Quiet Riot G97. Cardin’s FC Edmonds teams have won or tied 80% of their games under his direction.

Cardin was a three-sport athlete at Mountlake Terrace High School, and as a club soccer player he was named “Defensive Player of the Year” while helping his team to three straight undefeated seasons. As a coach at Mountlake Terrace Cardin has had success with more than just soccer. He helped lead the Men’s Track team to a “combined” State Championship as well as four straight playoff appearances for the Football team.

Cardin takes over a program coming off one of the best seasons in school history. The Phins finished 3rd in the North Region making the NWAC Playoffs. They then rattled off victories over Bellevue and Lane to reach the NWAC Championships at Starfire. Eventual champion Spokane knocked the Phins off in the semi final with a goal in the last minutes of extra time.

Matt Dorman steps down as Women’s Soccer coach

Matt Dorman has resigned as the Head Coach of Women’s Soccer. Dorman led the Phins to a historic season in his first year on the job. Women’s Soccer finished with a 8-9-5 record overall and a 6-7-2 record in the North Region earning a spot in the NWAC playoffs. Shoreline then won two games as underdogs against champions from the West and South Regions, respectively. The Phins made it all the way to the NWAC Soccer Championships where they lost in the semifinals 0-1 to eventual champion Spokane.

Shoreline will begin an immediate search for the next Head Women’s Soccer Coach. The program is left in great shape with 12 players returning from last year’s team and 4 newcomers already signed to be Phins for the 2016 season!
