Kelsey Fenix

Trevecca Nazarene University athletic director Mark Elliott selected Kelsey Fenix, a former University of Kentucky soccer player and former associate head coach at Lipscomb University, as the fifth women's soccer coach in the history of the Trojan program. The Fenix Era started with the 2017 season.


In her first season as Trojans head coach, Kelsey Fenix guided the Trojans to six conference wins, the most by a first-year head coach in school history. Her 8-6-3 overall record also garners top honors as the best record by a first-year head coach in history.


Her first collegiate coaching victory came on September 2, 2017, with a 3-1 win over Shorter University, her first Great Midwest Athletic Conference win followed days later, September 6th, against Kentucky Wesleyan College and her first home victory came against Sewanee on September 9th, all within a week’s timeframe.


Her Trojans enjoyed another three-game winning streak in mid-October outscoring Lake Eric College, Davis & Elkins College and Alderson Broaddus University by a combined score of 8-2.


Fenix’s first season as head coach came to an end in the Great Midwest quarterfinals against Walsh, 2-0. Fenix coached Hannah Barney and Sophia Callis to G-MAC first team honors as well as Diana Corzine to the second team.


Fenix follows Mark Foster, Brett Armstrong, Mark Champion and Stan Herod as the Trojans head coach.


Elliott said, "Kelsey has the right mix of spiritual foundation, playing experience, coaching knowledge and experience, relationship building skills, recruiting contacts, and great team vision ideas."


Elliott concluded, "Our goal was to find someone who would appreciate the program previous coaches and players had built and then, take the program to new heights. I truly believe we have selected the right person to step in and continue growing the program.”


Fenix embraces what it means to coach at Trevecca, "I whole-heartedly align with the mission and vision of the University and the Athletic Department. Trevecca is a place where, I believe, student-athletes can truly thrive. It is a community of people that supports every student-athlete toward growing in all areas of life: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This women's program is built on a solid foundation. I look forward to continuing the excellence on the field, while building a unique community and team culture.”


Prior to arriving at Trevecca Fenix assisted at Lipscomb University. While coaching with Kevin O'Brien at Lipscomb University, Fenix assisted the Bisons with historic results.


The 2013 team reached the ASUN Conference Tournament for the first time. The team has reached the tournament in each of the last four years now, making the ASUN Finals in each of the last two years while collecting a total of 24 wins in that span.


In 2015 the Bisons recorded a program-best 12 wins (12-4-4) and their first appearance in an ASUN Final while going 6-1 in ASUN contests. 2016 nearly mirrored those results with a 12-5-2 record, 5-1-1 in ASUN play, and a second consecutive trip to the ASUN Finals.
