Roxworthy has new role with Central women’s soccer team

Central College

PELLA — A team captain in 2015 and 2016, Kelsey Roxworthy has joined the Central College women’s soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach.

Roxworthy, who graduated from Central in May, remains with the program she earned four varsity letters with since arriving as a freshman in 2013.

“Kelsey is committed to our program,” coach Mike Kobylinski said. “I’ve seen her as a leader and a winner since the first day she stepped on campus. She has always had a knack for getting the best out of her teammates and herself. It’s clear her career path has led her to coaching and I am absolutely ecstatic to have her on staff.”

The St. Charles, Illinois native played in 73 games for the Dutch in her career, the sixth-most in program history. She earned second team all-Iowa Conference honors as a defender in 2016 and was an honorable mention in 2015. A recipient of the team’s Most Inspirational Player Award in 2015, she was also the Most Improved Player in 2014.

Roxworthy has coaching experience with the Pella High School program, assisting the Dutch girls’ team in 2016. She has also worked the Pella Soccer Club girls’ high school team since 2015. A veteran camp coach, she has worked summer camps at Central as well as Strikers Fox Valley in Geneva, Illinois and Coerver Coaching in St. Charles, Illinois.

Roxworthy fills the vacancy left by the departure of Kirsty Fraser, who was unable to fulfill the position after accepting it earlier this summer.

In addition to Kobylinski and Roxworthy, goalkeepers coach Russ Goodman is back for a 12th year on the Dutch sideline.
