Boys Soccer

In 2021. St. Laurence High School announced Jaime Alonso as the school’s new head boys soccer coach in addition to his responsibilities as the girls coach.

In his first year leading the girls program, Alonso led the team to a top 10 ranking in the Southland. He also served as the head assistant for the boys team that finished ranked number one in the Southland and top 15 in all of Chicagoland in Spring 2021. Alonso is a recent graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he received his Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology. As a member of the soccer team at UIC, he was part of Horizon League conference championship teams in 2015, 2017 and 2018. In addition to his success as a player, he was praised by the Flames’ coaching staff for his leadership in the locker room and positive work ethic. Alonso now continues his passion for the game as a coach for Inter FC, in which he guides boys and girls in becoming successful on and off the soccer field.

“It is an honor to add the boys soccer team to my coaching duties at St. Laurence,” said Alonso. “Coach Boekeloo has left this program in a great place, and I am excited to carry the torch so that we continue to live up to the standard that the team has built in recent years. I look forward to bringing the same amount of passion to both the boys and girls programs to ensure that they are considered among the best in the area, Chicagoland and all of Illinois.”

“Coach Alonso was a natural fit to make this transition,” said St. Laurence Athletic Director Tim Chandler. “In just a few short months, he has left an incredible impression on everyone in the St. Laurence community, from administrators to teachers to students. Combined with his outstanding background in soccer, we know that he can help maintain the strong tradition this program has built.”
