Eleven years ago Coach Bob Dieterle, along with Assistant Coach Bob-O Wagner, transformed the ASHS Girls Soccer Program from a middle of the conference pack to a national powerhouse contender. His mission: to build a competitive program. He accomplished that mission and so much more through the years along with empowering young girls to become leaders on and off the field, plus bring in traditions and passion for the game.
Tonight the Spalding soccer community gave thanks and recognition to that program with congratulations and Good Luck to Bob, Bob-O and their Assistant the last couple years, Fallon Brown.
Bob's teams compiled a record of 173-24-21. They made the finals of the IAAM "A" Conference 8 times in 11 years winning the Championship 4 times (2006, 2008, 2009 and 2012). That is truly an impressive record for sure! My connection to the team is that my daughter Olivia played on the Varsity Team for three years and was on three of the four championship teams. Great memories!
Thank you coaches for a job well done.
