GHS introduces varsity girls'soccer coach
The Greencastle Community School Corporation Board of Trustees, at their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, May 19, 2014, appointed Angela Weeks as the GHS Tiger Cubs Girls' Soccer Head Coach for the fall 2014 season.
Weeks will be replacing Jamie Grivas, who moved out of state for employment reasons.
Coach Weeks has been a faculty member in the Greencastle School Corporation since 2008 at Deer Meadow Primary. She has also taught in Arizona and California.
Weeks as been involved with the PCYSA (Putnam County Youth Soccer Association) for almost 10 years.
She started coaching in the recreation league and then crossed over to the travel league five years ago.
She currently is the coach the u15 travel boys (coed) team and has an Indiana Soccer/USSF "E" Coaching License. Working in the local community as an educator, a PCYSA board member, and as a coach has given Weeks a great sense of connection with players and their families.
She has enjoyed watching the growth of her players over the years in terms of their individual skills and collectively as a whole unit.
Weeks graduated from Zionsville High School where she grew up playing soccer in their recreation league and then ventured down a life-long journey of being an athlete as a cross country and track runner.
She attended Purdue University and studied education with the hopes of someday being able to give back to the community "as my teachers and coaches once did for me."
"I look forward to moving to the local varsity girls' soccer position with a focus on individual and team skill work, strong conditioning ethics, and commitment to players and their evolving development of the game.
I have always valued the mental and physical challenge that the game of soccer brings to players and I cannot wait to get started," said Weeks.
Greencastle's Athletic Director says that Weeks coaching skills make her a good fit.
"We are always happy to find a teacher who has the skill set to coach our student-athletes. Coach Weeks is a nice addition to our coaching staff and I am confident we will continue to build our program," Hill said.
