Dawn Crow Completes Soccer Coaching Staff
PITTSBURGH - Duquesne University head women's soccer coach Dawn Crow completed her coaching staff by naming Krista McKendree and Allie Rogosheske as assistants.
McKendree and Rogosheske, who had standout playing careers at the University of Evansville and University of Wisconsin respectively, are both currently playing for the Memphis Mercury of the womens' soccer W-league.
"Krista and Allie bring a wealth of playing experience to the staff," said Crow. "I think it is important that the our players feel they can communicate with the coaching staff. I also think that with their playing background and their dedication that both Krista and Allie will have a long future in coaching if that is something they desire."
McKendree, a native of Evansville, Ind., was named the University of Evansville's first women's soccer All-American in 2000. She led the Aces to NCAA Tournament appearances in 1998, 1999 and 2001, and was the only unanimous selection on the 2001 Missouri Valley Conference Women's Soccer Scholar-Athlete Team. She was also the third player in league history named first team all-conference four consecutive years. McKendree, 21, graduated from Evansville in May with a degree in accounting.
Rogosheske, who was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minn., was a two-time co-captain and a second-team All-Big 10 pick as a defender at Wisconsin in 2001. She holds the Wisconsin school record for matches played with 85. The 23-year-old Rogosheske completed her degree in English and communication arts from UW in 2001.
The DU women's soccer team begins its second season under coach Crow on Friday, August 30 at Southern Methodist University.
