Alexandra Neumann is the program's fourth head coach.
The Wiley College women's soccer program begins a new era as Alexandra Neumann was officially introduced as the fourth head coach in program history.
"I'm really excited about this opportunity," Neumann said. "I want to see my players play with heart and passion. I want this team to be successful and continue to thrive."
Neumann a native of Oak Park, Illinois, replaces Rafael Muniz – who is the all-time winningest coach in Lady Wildcats' history with a 16-9-2 record with the program's first two Red River Athletic Conference berths in program history. She joins Wiley College from Mississippi Valley State University where she worked as a graduate assistant for the women's soccer program. She played two seasons from 2012-2013.
At Mississippi Valley State University, Neumann earned a Bachelor's degree in Health, Physical Education and Recreation. She earned a Master's degree in Business Administration. Neumann is also a certified personal trainer and helps athletes with strength and conditioning.
The Lady Wildcats are projected to return 11 players from last season's team that finished with the best record in program history at 8-4-2 and 5-2-2 in Red River Athletic Conference play. Neumann said her team will be goal-oriented.
"I believe in goal-setting," Neumann said. "We are going to set team goals. Each player is going to set goals for themselves."
