Four-Year Baccalaureate University Hires Williams To
Lead First-Ever Men’s Soccer Team
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Zane Hill has been hired as the university’s head men’s soccer coach. In his position, Hill is responsible for initiating all aspects of the men’s soccer program, which includes recruiting prospective players, overseeing the training and coaching of team members, and coordinating the development and promotion of the men’s program, which is slated to play its first game in 2013.
A native of Memphis, Tenn., Hill moved to Woodbridge, Va. and attended the University of Virginia where he played varsity soccer and lettered all four years. Upon graduation, he served as a relief counselor in Charlottesville, Va., while coaching soccer and working as an outreach coordinator with Soccer Organization of Charlottesville-Albemarle. Hill has coached soccer at varying grade levels while simultaneously working as a substitute teacher and school counseling intern across Tennessee, Virginia and Washington, D.C. When he moved to North Carolina, he initially worked as a teacher’s assistant in Wake County as well as a coach for club games of the Triangle United Soccer Association in Chapel Hill. Prior to joining William Peace University, Hill most recently served as the lead soccer coach at WakeMed Soccer Park. He holds the U.S. Soccer Federation National “B” license, which certifies him to coach players age 16 to college level.
“I am extremely honored to be named the first-ever men’s soccer coach at William Peace University, and consider myself fortunate to join such a quality university,” said Hill. “Located in a community with a strong soccer presence and talent pool, the team has great potential for long-term success. Working alongside our administration, the William Peace University athletic staff and the local Raleigh community, I look forward to building a strong foundation for the upcoming 2013 season and beyond.”
“We are proud to announce Zane Hill as William Peace University’s head men’s soccer coach,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “He comes to us with a highly experienced athletic background, and he has an optimistic vision for university athletics and how to best position our men’s soccer program for the years to come. We trust that Zane will create and guide our men’s team into a successful program, and we look forward to supporting his efforts.”
Hill earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from University of Virginia in 2005 and a Masters of Arts in school counseling from Marymount University in 2011.
William Peace University is located in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina. It was founded in 1857 as Peace Institute, offering education for boys and girls in primary grades and to women from high school to college. Peace, an all women’s college, became a four-year baccalaureate college and graduated its first bachelor’s students in August of 1996. Exclusively an all-women’s institution for its first 152 years, Peace began offering coeducational evening courses through the William Peace School of Professional Studies in 2009. In 2011, Peace College transitioned to William Peace University and welcomed its first coeducational class to its day program in fall 2012. Its mission is to prepare students for careers in the organizations of tomorrow. On average, more than 90 percent of the university’s graduates are placed in jobs or graduate school within one year of graduation. For more information, please visit http://www.peace.edu.
