Beloit, WI -- Liz Bartley, a 1993 Beloit College graduate who has coached the Buccaneer Women's Soccer program for seven seasons, is stepping down from the position.
Bartley, who also served as the Athletic Department's Senior Women's Administrator and the driving force behind the annual Artletics show each Spring, coached nine All-Midwest Conference players during her tenure as well as 65-plus MWC All-Academic Team honorees. She also teamed with Beloit Volleyball head coach Dawn Red on the College's NCAA CHOICES program for the past two years.
She was a four-year letterwinner for the Buccaneer Women's Soccer squad from 1989 to 1992 and she remains a fixture in the Buccaneer record book. A goalkeeper, she ranks third in career saves with 301, first in career goals-against-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 1.00 in 1991 and 1.10 in 1992, and has the top two individual season shutout marks with 9.5 in 1992 and 7.5 in 1991.
An extensive search has begun for the next head coach.
In addition to Bartley's departure, two other Athletic Department members are saying good-bye as we head into the Summer months.
Tami Magner joined the Buccaneer staff in August of 2011 as one of the recipients of an NCAA Ethnic Minority/Women's Internship Grant. She was an assistant coach for the Buccaneer Softball squad the last two seasons and worked in the Department in marketing and promotions. She was involved in a wide variety of projects, most notably in the design selection for the Beloit Relays this past March and the orginization of the meet.
Trina Hoffman was an intern for the Athletic Training staff throughout the past year, working with a variety of sports.
