Jordan Sergi was hired as the women’s soccer graduate assistant in the summer of 2016 and began the job in August. With an unplanned change in coaching prior to Sergi’s arrival, there was much to do in little time before the 2016 Bulldog women’s soccer season began. Sergi adapted well to the changes and expectations and quickly became an essential part to the team.
Sergi is originally from Middletown, Delaware. She played soccer at Culver Stockton College in Missouri, where she was a vital component to the Wildcats’ success all four years and was a team captain her senior year. Prior to her graduation, Sergi spent two years as the assistant varsity girls’ soccer coach at Appoquinimink High School in her home state.
Sergi is now pursuing her master’s degree in public health at Concordia.
“I chose the Concordia GA position because it not only allowed me to pursue a master’s degree, but gave me the opportunity to coach the greatest sport in the world,” Sergi said.
Although her time at Concordia has just begun, the team has quickly taken a liking to their newest graduate assistant.
“She is just that kind of person that you want to be around,” senior Leah Hoffmann said. “She is intense and motivating but she makes us laugh at the same time.”
The feeling is mutual for Sergi.
“My favorite part about our team is the combination of personalities,” Sergi said. “Managing 30 girls is a lot easier when they’re making you laugh. This team is a bunch of genuinely great individuals.”
After her time at Concordia is finished, Sergi hopes to pursue a career as a personal trainer/health and wellness coach and primarily focus on weight loss and sports performance. Sergi would also like to continue her coaching career.
