BLUE BELL, Pa. - Montgomery County Community College Athletics and Head Women's Soccer Coach Ben Winderman announced that Francine Roseman will returns as assistant coach for the 2015 season.
A seasoned coaching professional and former student-athlete herself, Roseman retuns to the sideline after assisting with last year's team. She will be a familiar face for returning players like Marisa Christensen, who was named to the 2014 Women's Soccer Division III All-Region XIX First Team, and Julie Primavera (pictured right with Roseman), who earned Offensive Player of the Year honors at the annual Athletics Banquet in May.
Roseman has made an impact on Montgomery's athletic program since arriving at the Central Campus in Blue Bell last September. Originally hired as head softball coach, Roseman stepped in as interim head coach of the Mustangs' women's basketball program two months later.
"There's no question that Coach Francine's familiarity with our student-athletes is an asset," Winderman said. "We're both there to help them, both athletically and academically."
A former All-Sunshine State Conference centerfielder and a basketball player at the University of Tampa, Roseman has been around sports her entire life. Her father was a baseball and basketball player at Adelphi University, while her uncle played football at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Roseman coached Upper Dublin Junior Athletic Association girls intramural from 2007-2010 and girls UDJAA travel basketball from 2010-2013. She also served as UDJAA's travel basketball commissioner for both girls and boys from 2010-2013. She also coached Upper Dublin girls travel soccer.
"I'm excited about joining Coach Winderman," Roseman said. "He has a plan and a vision for this program and I look forward to helping it become a reality."
