Alexa Ream

Alexa Ream was named head coach of the Golden Eagle soccer program in March 2020, and enters her third year - but just second true season - at the helm in 2022. A former Golden Eagle student-athlete with years of coaching experience, she returns to Clarion after spending the previous year as an assistant at Mercyhurst.

Ream took over the program during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, coaching them to a 1-4 record in Spring 2021. She returned to the sidelines in Fall 2021 and got to work with the young squad, leading them ot a 4-12-1 record overall. She got her first career home win on Sept. 11 against Cal U, but the team's signature victory that year came on Oct. 9 when the Golden Eagles beat 23rd-ranked Slippery Rock 2-1 at Memorial Stadium. It was the team's first-ever win over a nationally-ranked opponent and their first ever over The Rock. Defender Alexis Moyer earned the third all-conference honors of her career, with the mainstay on the Golden Eagles' back line garnering First Team All-PSAC West honors. Sophomore Kylee Cross was named Second Team All-PSAC West in a season where she broke the program's single-season records for points (15) and assists (5), and tied for second all-time in goals (5).

Ream helped coach a Laker squad that went 11-6-2 in 2019, marking their first winning season since 2009 and their first trip to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) since 2013. Alyssa Otto earned PSAC Freshman of the Year honors after leading the Lakers with 14 goals, four assists and 32 points, and was one of three Lakers to earn All-Atlantic Region honors. Taryn Baxter and Amber Thomas were also named All-Region selections, and joined Otto as well as Maya Bauer on the All-PSAC squad. Prior to her time at Mercyhurst, Ream spent two years as a graduate assistant coach at Wheeling. While she was on staff the Cardinals placed multiple student-athletes on all-conference squads. Ream also has years of experience organizing and coaching camps and youth soccer teams across Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Ream started her college playing career at Clarion in 2012 and was a Golden Eagle from 2012-14, before transferring to Lock Haven for her final two years. She served as a captain for the Bald Eagles and played 4,939 career minutes between the two squads. She graduated from Lock Haven with a degree in Health Science with a minor in Coaching in 2014, and earned her MBA from Wheeling in 2019.
