She joins the university after playing collegiately at both Seton Hall and St. John’s. The Aberdeen, N.J., native will start her coaching career with the Knights this fall and work for head coach Eric Teepe.
“I cannot wait to take advantage of this great opportunity I have to begin my [collegiate] coaching career,” said Urbanski. I am eager to use what I have learned while playing at St. John’s and transfer that to our players [at FDU] to continue to compete at the highest level and succeed both on and off the field.”
Urbanski spent the past three seasons with the Red Storm and scored the game winning game for St. John’s against Central Connecticut in the first game of the 2016 campaign. After spending two seasons (2012, 2013) at Seton Hall, Urbanski transferred to St. John’s and suited up in 39 games for the Red Storm over the course of two years, earning the captain’s armband in her final season in Queens. The defender played in 19 games and made 12 starts during the 2015 campaign and helped lead a back line that anchored the Johnnies to a school-record 15 wins and 12 shutouts.
Urbanski is a US Youth Soccer Region One Assistant Coach in Training and was an administrator for Region Events in 2017 — U.S. ODP National Camp.
“We are very excited to add Alexis to our coaching staff,” said Teepe. “Her experience as a player and a coach will be valuable to our current players in training, competition and off the field as well.”
