Delaney Williams, second year PIHS math teacher, took on the JV girls soccer program as a new coach, replacing Krystal Kingsbury, who is now a full time nurse at Northern Light A.R. Gould Hospital.

Williams applied last spring to for the position. “All summer I was anxious,” said Willams. Ever since Williams was in elementary school, she had played soccer and was speaking caption her senior year at Caribou High School in 2014. Coach Todd Albert was William’s soccer coach for three years at Caribou H.S. “He pushed us to be the best that we could be, and formed relationships with his players that lasted long after the soccer season ended,” said Williams. Albert was her favorite coach. “If I can be half the coach that he was, I will consider myself a pretty good coach,” said Williams. 

Williams has always dreamed of being a soccer coach, and hopes to continue to be the coach for many years to come. “My job is to get the girls ready to play at the varsity level,” said Williams. “If they get better, stronger, faster and more confident every day we will have a successful season,” Williams said.

The soccer season started August 19. The JV girls team has played two scrimmages so far. They have played the Hodgdon and Southern Aroostook varsity teams.  Williams’ approach is for her team to play a flat back four defense. The offensive side works on beating the outside back defenders. They take the ball down the line, crossing the ball in, and finishing in the back of the net. “It gives us a chance to really see our strengths and weaknesses on both offense and defense,” said Williams.

Before each game Williams gives the team a talk to get them ready to play. “I like to remind them that they should have pride for the Presque Isle Wildcat jersey they are wearing,” said Williams.

“She’s always pushing us and encouraging us to do our best,” said Courtney Kane ’22
