Wildcat girls’ soccer coach takes position at SPU

Mount Si High School’s girls’ soccer coach, Lindsey Jorgensen, has been named as an assistant women’s soccer coach at Seattle Pacific University. Jorgensen will continue to teach math at Mount Si, where she was a star goalkeeper.

As a Wildcat, Jorgensen was a three-time all-league goalkeeper before graduating in 1998.

She continued to shine at Washington State University, where she set several school records as the school’s starting goalkeeper from 1998 to 2001. She was also captain of the team which won the 2000 NCAA Tournament.

After graduating in 2002 and a brief professional career in Seattle, she served as an assistant coach at WSU from 2003 to 2007.

Her experience will be a valuable asset for the Seattle Pacific Falcons, who won the 2008 NCAA Division II national championship, said head coach Chuck Sekyra.

“I’m excited to be a part of a national championship program at Seattle Pacific,” Jorgensen said.

She will take over as the team’s goalkeepers coach.

Seattle Pacific opens its season with four consecutive home games, beginning Thursday, Aug. 27, against Cal State Monterey Bay.

Jorgensen received a master’s degree in secondary education from WSU in 2008.
