PCC Selects Randy Lilavois As Women's Soccer Head Coach
Randy Lilavois has been selected as just the second head coach in the history of the Pasadena City College women's soccer program by Athletic Director/Dean of Kinesiology, Health & Athletics Beverly Tate. The Lancers begin the 2010 season in late August.
This is the first community college coaching job (a part-time position) for Lilavois. Since 2007, Lilavois has served as head coach for the South Pasadena High girls varsity, directing his teams to make the CIF playoffs in each of the past three seasons.
Lilavois previously coached the Crescenta Valley High boys team (2005-2007), and both the boys and girls teams at Chaparral High (Las Vegas, Nevada, 2003-2005). In 2007 at Crescenta Valley, he guided the varsity to its first post-season appearance in seven years.
In 2004, he was the Sunrise Region Northeast Division Coach of the Year in directing the Chaparral boys team to the division title and regional finals.
"My goal is to rebuild the program and help PCC return to the regional playoffs," Lilavois said. "We want to see the players culture their playing skills and eventually transfer to the 4-year level. This is a great opportunity for me. We're in an area rich in soccer talent."
Besides prep school coaching, Lilavois has worked the past five years with the Crescenta Valley Soccer Club. He was recently promoted to the club's girls director position, guiding players from ages 9-19. Lilavois said the current graduating class for CVSC features 12 players that are moving on to play at the college level.
Lilavois earned a master's degree in cross-cultural teaching at National University in Costa Mesa after completing his B.A. degree in English at Cal State Long Beach (1997). He is a graduate of La Salle High where he lettered four years on the soccer team.
