NEW MIDDLETOWN OH- Springfield is one of the most successful girls soccer programs the area has seen in the last two seasons. The Tigers have only lost three games in two years. The Tigers are coming off a 15-1 season, but a disappointing ending, losing to United 2-0 in the District semifinals. Springfield returns seven starters from a season ago, two of which were named 1st team all district in 2020. They do lose the YDSSCA Division III Player of the Year in Kylee Kosek. The core is still there and that gives head coach Justin Kosek reasons to be optimistic. Coach Kosek is 18 wins away from 100 in his career, and a deep tournament run might just get him there.
Coach Kosek was kind enough to stop by YSN’s Running Point this week to preview the 2021 season. He talks with Anthony Hartwig, and Ty Bartell about his own journey to be a head coach, building team chemistry, and much more.
