I am grateful for the opportunity to join the William Peace University family and athletics program, and am very excited by the potential of the women’s soccer program. I can’t wait to meet the team and look forward to building a strong team culture.”

Athletic Director Tom Curle stated, “Becky Scroger brings a wealth of experience as a coach at all levels of intercollegiate women’s soccer. Our national search emphasized finding a coach who was student-centric and would promote a positive, competitive atmosphere. We have found exactly that with Coach Scroger. Throughout her career, she has focused on the student experience. I am truly excited about Coach Scroger and believe she will be a great addition to the University and Athletic Department. Most importantly, I am confident that she will provide our women’s soccer athletes with a great experience.”
