Head Women's Soccer Coach
Senior Women’s Administrator
Elizabeth Bartley, a 1993 Beloit College graduate, became the first full-time head coach of the Buccaneer Women’s Soccer program prior to the 2006 season.
Bartley has more than a few years of soccer coaching experience at the collegiate level, including a stint as the head women’s soccer coach at NCAA Division I-AA Youngstown State University in Ohio. She coached the Penguins from 1999-2004. Before that, she was the head coach of the St. Xavier University women’s soccer team from 1996-99, and was the assistant women’s soccer coach at Northern Illinois University from 1994-96. At St. Xavier, she started the program from scratch and led her squad to a 17-6 record during its inaugural campaign and captured the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference championship. During the second year, her team finished 14-6-1 and were runners-up in the CCAC. In the fall of 1993, she was the assistant women’s soccer coach at the University of Chicago.
At Beloit, Bartley was a four-year letterwinner on the women’s soccer team, and she remains in the Buccaneer record book. A goalkeeper, she ranks third in career saves with 301, first in career goals-against-per-game average at 1.14, and first in career shutouts with 20.5. In the single-season records, she has the top two goals-against averages with 1.0 in 1991 and 1.1 in 1992, and has the top two individual season shutout marks with 9.5 in 1992 and 7.5 in 1991.
