Lindsey Vinson, joined the staff as Assistant Coach on December 1, 2014. Vinson, a native of Dawsonville, Ga., had an outstanding career as a goalkeeper on the St. Catharine Women's Soccer team. During her time at St. Catharine, she was named Academic All Mid-South Conference for all four years. She earned Player of the Week honors once, was second team All-Conference her junior year and was named NAIA Daktronics Scholar Athlete her junior and senior years. She was St. Catharine Female Athlete of the Year in 2013 and earned recognition as Outstanding Student of the year in both Biology and Natural Science.
Following her graduation from St. Catharine, Vinson worked with disadvantaged youth in the AmeriCorps program in Montana. But even while that work was ongoing, she contemplated her next move. “I was probably moving back to Georgia but Coach Patton talked to me about this possibility,” said Vinson. “That was an easy decision. I am definitely invested in this place (St. Catharine) and I really, really care about the school and the soccer program.” In addition to her daily work with the varsity program, Vinson will help with recruiting, work with the Reserve Squad, and coach the Goalkeepers.
