NEWS: Amy Marron Named Head Coach at SUNY Purchase (USA)
QUEENS, N.Y. – One of the top players in the history of the Red Storm Women?s Soccer program, Amy Marron continued her meteoric rise through the coaching ranks on Monday, officially being announced as the new head coach of the women?s soccer team at SUNY Purchase.
?On behalf of the St. John?s Women?s Soccer family, I would like to congratulate Amy on being named Head Coach at SUNY Purchase,? said Ian Stone. ?I would also like to thank her for everything she has given our program in her six years. We will all miss her, but I know she will do a fantastic job at Purchase and wish her good luck.?
Marron completed her second season on the sideline at St. John?s in 2015, playing an integral role in a group that took home BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year honors. As the team?s graduate assistant, Marron helped the Red Storm claim the first BIG EAST Regular Season title in program history, as the Johnnies notched a school-record 15 wins and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years.
The Valhalla, N.Y., native first joined Stone?s staff during the 2014 season, serving as a volunteer assistant coach for a Red Storm squad that finished 11-7-2 and advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament Semifinals. Marron returned to Queens after playing professionally in Iceland.
A 2014 graduate of St. John?s, Marron was a four-year standout on the pitch for Coach Stone, earning All-BIG EAST honors in three of those seasons. As a senior in the fall of 2013, Marron found a spot on the All-BIG EAST Second Team after leading the team in assists (7) and finishing second in goals (4). Marron was also an unquestioned team leader on a squad that advanced to the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history.
