Dominican College has named Marcelo Sandoval the new head coach of the school’s women’s soccer team. The Farmingdale resident is the eighth coach in program history.
“I would like to thank Joe Clinton, President Sister Mary Eileen O’Brien and the rest of the athletic administration staff for the opportunity to take over a great program,” Sandoval said. “I am looking forward to working to return to a perennial power in the CACC.”
Sandoval has more than 25 years of experience coaching men and women’s soccer, basketball and lacrosse.
“We are looking forward to Marcelo taking over the women’s soccer program,” said Clinton. “He has proven himself as an extraordinary college recruiter and I am confident that he will build a quality women’s soccer program here at Dominican.”
His most recent soccer experience was at the Portledge School in Locust Valley where he served as the men’s soccer coach, as well as the assistant athletic director and facilities coordinator from 2007-2009.
Sandoval is no stranger to Dominican as he also is in his second year as the head men’s lacrosse coach.
