SPASH names Rogosheske girls soccer head coach
Stevens Point Area Senior High School (SPASH) announced that Valerie (Allie) Rogosheske was named as its new head girls soccer coach Wednesday, Sept. 27.
Rogosheske takes over for Don Peel, who resigned from the position after last season.
“Allie brings a great deal of passion and coaching experience to our girls’ soccer program,” said SPASH athletic director Michael Blair. “She was a successful head coach at Plano West Senior High in Plano, Texas, for two seasons before moving back to Wisconsin.
“Rogosheske also played soccer at UW-Madison, where she was a two-year captain for the Badgers,” he said. “Allie understands what it takes to motivate student-athletes and lead an entire program in regard to girls’ soccer.”
A native of St. Cloud, Minn., Rogosheske was an all-Big Ten defender at the University of Wisconsin, where she graduated in 2001, and earned a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology from Texas Women’s University in 2012.
She worked as an assistant coach for the women’s soccer team at NCAA Division 1 Duquesne University, and was an assistant coach and later the head coach at Plano West, which was the No. 1-ranked high school team in the nation during her time there.
“We are very excited to welcome coach Rogosheske as part of our SPASH head coaching staff and look forward to her leading our soccer program with energy, passion, and commitment,” said Blair.
