Amy Helliwell

Amy Helliwell enters her ninth year as Rose-Hulman women's soccer coach after leading the Fightin' Engineers into to the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament in 2013, 2014 and 2016. Helliwell also serves as the Senior Women's Administrator for the Rose-Hulman athletic department.


Helliwell's most recent four squads ranked among the top defensive units in the nation. In 2013, the Fightin' Engineers finished No. 3 nationally with a .924 save percentage, and in 2014 the team was No. 5 nationally at .900. The 2015 team allowed just 20 goals for a 1.10 goals against average. In 2016, Rose-Hulman recorded six shutouts and allowed just 25 goals in 19 matches.


Goalkeeper Lucinda Combs completed a historic career in 2015 with school records of 40 wins, 36 shutouts, 464 saves, an .885 save percentage and a 0.78 goals against average. Defenders have also earned regional and national acclaim, highlighted by 2014 first-team Capital One Academic All-American honors for Mallory McDevitt.


The 2013 team did not lose a regular season conference match in regulation time, and that squad recorded six consecutive shutouts during the season.


Helliwell's teams have a 51-35-8 mark over the past five seasons. In eight years at Rose-Hulman, her career record stands at 71-69-9 overall and 39-28-4 in conference play.


In 2009, Helliwell inherited the program in August and led the Fightin' Engineers to a regular season conference championship. Rose-Hulman earned the top seed for the league tournament that year on the heels of a win at fellow league co-champion Hanover College. Eventual NCAA Tournament representative Transylvania University ended the magical run in the league tournament with a narrow 1-0 victory.


Helliwell came to Rose-Hulman after spending the last 11 years as head coach at Greenwood High School in Kentucky, where she led squad to six state Final Four appearances. Her teams combined for a 207-64-1 record with seven district championships, six regional and sectional titles, and the six Final Four appearances.


She also served as coach of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association All-Star Game in 2001, 2005 and 2008, and was named Southern Kentucky Soccer Referees Association Coach of the Year from 2001-05 and in 2008. Her career also includes serving as a mathematics teacher at Greenwood High School for 13 years.


Helliwell earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics and secondary education from the University of Southern Indiana in 1996 and obtained a master's degree in education guidance counseling from Western Kentucky University in 2003. She was a four-year varsity soccer player, all-state honoree at team captain during her prep career at Evansville Reitz Memorial High School.


Helliwell and her husband Sean, the men's soccer coach at Rose-Hulman, reside in Terre Haute.
