St. Laurence High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Kyle Boekeloo as the head varsity girls soccer coach. In addition to his duties as a coach, he will be a math teacher at St. Laurence.

Boekeloo becomes the first girls soccer coach in St. Laurence history. He comes from St. Joseph High School, where he was a soccer coach for both the boys and girls teams. Boekeloo had a decorated time as coach at St. Joseph, helping lead the boys team to a second place finish in state in 2014, along with winning the school’s first girls soccer Regional Championship in 2015.

“I’m honored and excited to call myself a Viking,” said Boekeloo. “The feeling I experienced after learning that I received this opportunity is indescribable. I could not be more excited to begin my journey at St. Laurence. My wife and I are thrilled to join this new family.”

As a player, Boekeloo was named an All-American after his senior season at Dominican University. He helped lead the team to a Division III Final Four appearance in 2009 and was a captain during his junior and senior seasons.

“We are excited to welcome Kyle Boekeloo to the St. Laurence family as our head girls soccer coach,” said St. Laurence Athletic Director Tim Chandler. “His passion for and knowledge of the sport were very apparent during the interview process. Kyle has a strong coaching background, and he has been a part of some very successful teams. We look forward to him duplicating that success with our girls soccer program.”

Soccer players entering 5th through 8th grade can meet Coach Boekeloo for the first time at our soccer summer camp from July 10-13. The coed camp will also be run by boys soccer coach Matt Prunckle. Parents can find more information at www.stlaurence.com/summercamps2017.
