RE: Kat Nichols announced at Pitt State Women's Soccer Assistant Coach!
VHSC is excited to announce that another one of our coaches is moving on to the collegiate ranks - Coach Kat Nichols will be the new Assistant Coach at Pitt State in Pittsburg, Kansas, starting in May.
Pitt State is a new DII program, and we know Coach Kat will help them build something special. She has made a big difference in the development of so many players in her eight years with the club, and we thank her for her service!
Kat Nichols joins a long list of former VHSC coaches who have gone on to do great things at the next level. The most prominent are Keidine McAlpine and Jason Lockhart, who won a national championship at USC and are now the current Women's Head and Assistant Coaches at the University of Georgia. More recently, Jarred Brookins is in the 2023 NCAA Final Four this weekend as a Men's Assistant Coach at Oregon, and Pat Flinn just finished his second season as Drake's (NCAA DI program in Iowa) Men's Head Coach. Most recently, Corey Smith became the Head Women's Coach at Birmingham Southern, with Coach Lettie Lundy as the assistant women's Coach at BSC. All coaches had long stints at VHSC.
