Reggie Rivas enters his second season as the Lancers women's soccer head coach. Since joining the PCC family as an assistant coach in 2011, Rivas has brought energy and enthusiasm to the job and an has promoted the program as a premier competitor in the high-level South Coast Conference.

"I'm excited to get the opportunity to help run a growing PCC women's soccer program," Rivas said. "We reached a key plateau by making the playoffs in 2012 and finishing conference runner-up. Last year was a learning one for me in charge, and now I really believe with the our outstanding recruiting class that 2014 could be a break-out year for the Lancers."

Rivas has an extensive soccer background, including his work as the founder and vice president of operations for the popular Crescenta Valley Soccer Club (CVSC). Rivas has produced many college-bound players through the club, created in 2001, one of them being South Coast Conference leading goal scorer Nancy Nunez from the 2012 PCC second-place team. All three of the Lancers' all-conference first team selections were former CVSC members in Nunez, team-leading points scorer Vanessa Capra, and defender Hallie White

Defenders Heather French and Danielle Busta were selected All-SCC Second Team as well as one of the state's finest finishers in header specialist and midfielder Cassandra Saavedra, who scored 13 goals in '12. In 2013, Rivas guided the development of All-SCC First Team choices in forward Amanda Papac and midfielder Cassandra Orozco, as well as Second Team conference selections in defender Bailey Shaw and midfielder Lizbeth Rodriguez.

In 2002, Rivas was head coach of the Crescenta Valley High girls soccer team, a squad that finished as the runner-up in the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs. In two head coaching stints at CVHS, Rivas produced an 89-24-17 record, including back-to-back Pacific League titles in 2009-2010. He was named Pacific League Coach of the Year in 2010. He also served as an assistant coach for UCLA's women's team back in 2002.

Rivas played soccer at Modesto Junior College and Cal State University-Northridge before an injury ended his playing career in the late 1990s.
